Business Insider recently conducted a study to determine the annual household income required to be in the top 50 percent in 50 major United States metro areas. To do so, they gathered data from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2016 American Community Survey one-year estimates.

For The Peach City, it’s at least $62,613, which is the median income as well, the analysts wrote. They also noted that it takes $345,867 to be in the top 1 percent in Georgia.
