Rumson, Fair Haven: “Super ZIP Codes”

Interactive ZIP Code Map

Interactive ZIP Code Map

The Washington Post released an interesting interactive graphic application which lets you input your ZIP code and see the economic statistics for your town and the communities that surround it. It focuses on two primary metrics: the median family income and the percentage of college graduates.

If you go to the web site and type in 07760 or 07704 you’ll get a map of our area, with towns (or rather ZIP codes) appearing in different colors. The ZIP codes appearing in yellow are known as “Super ZIP codes”. The site gives each zip code a numerical ranking between 0 and 99, based on the average of its percentile ranks in college education and in income. “Super ZIP codes” have a numerical rank of 95 or higher, and nationwide there are only 650 of them.

Both Rumson and Fair Haven are Super Zips, and here’s how their percentile rankings appear:

Zip/Town                    Ranking          Median Family Income          % College Grads

07760/Rumson                  96                                $123,630                                      59

07704/Fair Haven             98                                $126,929                                      69

A neighboring ZIP/Town has an even higher overall ranking. You can go to the interactive map and find ityourself, or you can wait until tomorrow and I’ll let you know which one it is.  Here’s the link to the map: http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/local/2013/11/09/washington-a-world-apart/
