    Richest and poorest places in Sacramento

    For communities across the United States, growing income disparity creates a challenging economic reality for families and individuals.

    To help understand differences in income levels throughout the Sacramento area, Stacker analyzed data from the most recent American Community Survey from the U.S. Census. We focused on the 13 Public Use Microdata Areas (PUMAs) that encompass Sacramento proper, defined as statistical geographic areas with populations of over 100,000.

    We've ranked these areas by median income per capita from low to high, including supporting data around the population, unemployment rates, and median rental rates.
