Is Delaware County (Ohio) a yuppie county?

In Sunday’s Dispatch, a columnist was offering his opinion on how counties voted for the two Democratic candidates in the recent Primary election. In the article he mentioned that Delaware County voted much different than all the other 88 counties in Ohio citing that it was a “yuppie” county.

I decided to check the actual demographics to see if they supported his comment. The demos of the more populated southern half of the county definitely support the columnist’s yuppie comment. The numbers below are for MEDIAN HOUSEHOLD INCOME, % of residents having a BACHELOR’S DEGREE or higher, and the MEDIAN AGE of residents. The list is high-low by income.
