Even though New Jersey is home to five of the most expensive property zip codes in the United States and the third-highest Household Expenses, the reality is that South Jersey is very different than North Jersey.  The differences between the two major areas of New Jersey go well beyond their proximity to major cities and population density.

New Jersey is home to the highest median household income, which is over $22,000 more than the Real Median Income in the United States according to the US Census Bureau.

The latest US Census Data gathered by Datawrapper and distributed by NJ Advance Media shows that the highest Median Household Income in the southernmost counties in New Jersey is Haddonfield.  The Municipality in Camden County has an average Household Income of $178,362.
