Folsom Ranks First in Median Income, Second in College Grads
The 2000 census data is in, and Folsom has ranked first in the Sacramento Valley in median income, with an average income of $82,000. Folsom trails only Davis in the percentage of college graduates in the area. Davis, which is most well known for its university (UC Davis), tops in at almost 69%. Many factors figure to weigh in to the high percentage of income in the area, however the presence of Intel and other high-tech companies in ther region figure to be a major contributing factor.
