Richest and poorest places in Miami

  • Richest and poorest places in Miami

    In a city as large as Miami, the economic fortunes of residents can vary dramatically from neighborhood to neighborhood. From the Miami-Dade limits to the gilded highrises of Brickell, each area carries a different reality in terms of the wealth of its residents.

    To help understand income disparity throughout Miami, Stacker analyzed data from the most recent American Community Survey from the U.S. Census. Stacker focused on the 25 Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) that encompass Miami-Dade County, defined as statistical geographic areas with populations of over 100,000, digging into the range of economic circumstances for each community.

    The research team has ranked these areas by median income per capita from low to high, including supporting data around the population, unemployment rates, and median rental rates.

    Read on to find out the richest and poorest areas in Miami.
