Columbia County 162nd in the nation in per-capita income

That's according to the Census Bureau, which in August dumped out a bunch of newly updated statistics for the not-quite-800 largest (in population) counties in the U.S. Columbia talled $27,496 in per-capita income, ranking it beneath Worcester County, Mass., and Northampton County, Pa. (The ranking only considered counties with at least 65,000 residents, so sorry, Warren, McDuffie and other nearby counties weren't included -- Columbia was the closest one on the list.) Highest Georgia county on the list: No surprise – Fulton at 30th ($35,795) followed immediately by Fayette ($35,639) at 31st.
