That’s the percentage of all high-income U.S. households that live in the country’s 50 most populous metropolitan areas, according to a report yesterday by the Census Bureau.

The Bridgeport-Stamford-Norwalk metropolitan area in Connecticut had the largest share of high-income households, with 17.9 percent of households in the top 5 percent of national income distribution, or an annual household income of at least $191,469.

About 15.9 percent of households in the San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara area of California are among the top 5 percent, followed by the Washington-Arlington-Alexandria area — which includes the nation’s capital and suburbs in northern Virginia — at 14.1 percent.
