Experts Rank Anne Arundel County #7

Did you see the Forbes Magazine article featuring the nation’s Best Places to Get Ahead?  Anne Arundel County is #7.

Matt Woolsey reports on communities where income and job growth are the highest, based upon income and job data from the U.S. Census and Department of Labor Statistics.  They didn’t take into account the likelihood that this will continue in Anne Arundel County during future years due to further job and income expansion resulting from BRAC 2005.  I imagine that factor secures Anne Arundel County’s place on this list for years to come.

This study was limited to counties where the median income was at least $75,000, starting with data from the year 2000, and places people live AND earn their paychecks – NOT retreats for the rich or bedroom communities where people live in one county but work in a neighboring jurisdiction.  For information about additional criteria, read Best Places to Get Ahead and you’ll see why Anne Arundel County, Maryland, made the Top Ten, along with five other Washington, D.C. area counties.
