Arlington Has Most ‘Affluent' Millennials in Nation, Study Finds

Data shows Arlington has largest percentage of millennial-led households making more than $350,000 a year

From how much wine they drink to how little they pray, millenials are the subject of many studies — and one of the latest millennial-driven studies is highlighting the household wealth of Arlington's 22 to 34 age group.

Arlington has more millennial-led households that make more than $350,000 a year than any other city in the United States, according to online real estate company Zillow

Zillow looked at U.S. Census data and found that "8.7 percent of millennials in this DC suburb made more than $350,000 — a bigger share than the percentage of people 55 and older making that kind of bank."

D.C. tied with New York City for the eighth spot on the list. Zillow said 2.8 percent make more than $350,000 in the District.

San Francisco has the second-most affluent millenials, while other California cities, including Huntington Beach, Sunnyvale and Pasadena, weren't far behind.
