How We Determined The Wealthiest Neighborhoods In Albuquerque For 2022

Every city has it's best neighborhoods -- where everyone wants to live -- and the worst neighborhoods -- where no one wants to live. And then you have the wealthiest neighborhoods, where no one can afford to live.

And by no one, we really mean you because there's always someone richer than you.

How do you quantify richer than you? We looked at one simple criterion:

Which neighborhoods have the highest median income?

Using census and extrapolated BLS data, we ranked every neighborhood based on income levels.

We ranked every neighborhood in Albuquerque by median income from highest to lowest. The neighborhood with the highest median income, Vineyard Estates, was named the richest neighborhood in Albuquerque.

The poorest neighborhood? That would be Los Jardines.

Now a look at how all the neighborhoods in Albuquerque ranked.
