How the rankings were calculated

According to HowToHome: The data used in this analysis comes from the US Bureau of Statistics and the US Bureau of Economic Analysis.

In the event of a tie, the location with the greater total number of employees in occupations with a median wage greater than $100,000 was ranked higher.
