CNN Money has a slide show featuring the top ten counties with the highest number of household millionaires. Do you live amongst them? Perhaps you are one.
- Los Angeles, California with 268,138 households, home of Donna Martin
- Cook County (Chicago), Illinois with 171,118 households, home of the Oprah Winfrey Show
- Orange County, California with 116,157 households, home of my mom (and Mickey Mouse)
- Maricopa County (Phoenix), Arizona with 113,414 households, home of Alice Cooper
- San Diego County, California with 102,138 households, home of Nyoka, the ball python
- Harris County (Houston), Texas with 99,504 households, former home of Halliburton
- Nassau County (Western Long Island), New York with 79,704 households, home of David Wright
- Santa Clara County (San Jose/Silicon Valley), California with 74,824 households, home of Google
- Palm Beach County, Florida with 71,221 households, home of Jimmy Buffett
- King County (Seattle), Washington with 68,390 households, home of Dr. Frasier Crane
If you live in one of these areas, but are not a millionaire, at least you can feel safe with the knowledge that burglars will be focusing their efforts on the neighbor’s house rather than yours.
