(Meredith) – You're probably not surprised to find out that the richest communities in America typically reside in places like Silicon Valley and around New York City.

But that’s changing, according to the latest Bloomberg analysis. Information was taken from a 2016 U.S. census.

Here’s what researchers found out:

  • Atherton, California tops the list due to its proximity to Palo Alto, Stanford University, and Menlo Park.
  • New areas added to the list were three areas in the suburbs of Chicago.
  • 21 cities on the list are in California
  • 36 cities on the list were in the tri-state areas of Connecticut, New Jersey, and New York.
