By the numbers: Spring Creek ranks the richest of Nevada towns

Spring Creek was ranked the richest town in Nevada in a 24/7 Wall St. analysis examining small, affluent communities where most households exceed the nation’s median annual household income.

With a population of 13,482, Spring Creek recorded a median household income of $94,951 annually, based on 2017 U.S. Census Bureau data.

Spring Creek’s poverty rate was pegged at 4.7 percent, and its median home value came in at  $220,400.

Education may be one of the reasons median annual household income in most of these towns exceeds $57,600. 

In all but two states, the richest town's share of residents with bachelor’s degrees exceeds that of the state as a whole, the study concluded.

The analysis considered only towns with populations of 1,000 to 25,000 residents.
