You Don't Live in Washington, D.C.
Forbes.com recently ranked the top 20 cities where women earn the most
, based on data from the 2011 American Community Survey by the U.S. Census Bureau. Washington, D.C.; San Jose, California; and Bridgeport, Connecticut, top the list. (Disappointingly, there are only four communities in which women earn equal to or more than men: Key West, Florida; Madera, California; Fort Payne, Alabama; and Sebring, Florida.) The list suggests that if you are looking to relocate, consider going to an urban center with a high concentration of top-rated universities and professional jobs requiring highly developed skills; both factors push up the earnings of the women who live in such a place.
