County Ranks High
In Net Worth

  Financial technology company SmartAsset analyzed data to find the places with the highest per capita net worth.
  According to SmartAsset’s study, Saluda County ranks among the top spots in South Carolina. The  study analyzes income, net worth, and debt in counties across the country to determine which locations had the highest per capita net wealth relative to debt.
  In the table aboveyou can see how Saluda County stacked up against other leaders in South Carolina:
  The study aims to find the places in the United States where residents have the highest net worth. To do this, they calculated the ratio of net worth to per capita income for every county. This number can serve as insight into how much people have saved or invested relative to their income level.
  The company also calculated the ratio of net worth to debt per capita for each county. This measure incorporates a view of a county’s debt burden relative to net worth.
  Lastly, SmartAsset indexed each factor and calculated an overall index by taking a weighted average of each of these indices. The net worth to income index was given a weight of two and the net worth to debt index was given a weight of one.
