Delaware County, outside of Columbus, is one of the top three places in the country to get ahead, according to a recent list released by Forbes.com.

The business magazine web site examined U.S. Census Bureau and U.S. Department of Labor statistics from 2000 forward for every county in the nation to determine which offered “the best job prospects for the average American.” The survey identified counties with median incomes of at least $75,000, “where people are well-off and getting ahead.”

It zeroed in on counties where median incomes were rising most quickly, and then factored in job growth.

The best prospects for living the American dream turned up in Forsyth County near Atlanta, and Stafford County in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. The Washington, D.C., metro area dominated the list.
