Research released this morning by Interest.com says Baltimore is the 9 th most affordable city among the 25 largest metro areas.

In Baltimore's case, the median income exceeded the amount needed to buy a house here by 8 percent. Most affordable metro areas in order: Detroit, Atlanta, Minneapolis, Phoenix and St. Louis. Least affordable: San Francisco, followed by New York, San Diego, Miami and Los Angeles.

So according to the national media, if you're still single in the Baltimore area, you're just not trying hard enough. First, over the summer, Money Magazine said that Towson is one of the country's top places to find rich singles. And now Bloomberg puts Ellicott City near the top of its list of "swinging singles" spots. Hoboken, N.J., is at the very top of the list. Arlington, Va., in our general area, ranked second. But Ellicott City made it to Bloomberg's respectable eighth position for men. Bowie, meanwhile, took the third spot when it came to women singles.

If you think President Bush's abysmal public approval is strictly a function of his mismanagement of the Iraq war, think again: While Mr. Bush's overall approval, depending on the poll, hovers near 30 percent, his approval for handling the economy is not much better. A June national poll by the American Research Group, in fact, pegged Mr. Bush's overall approval at 27 percent and his handling of the economy just 2 points higher, at 29 percent. Given that the war has eaten most of the president's national agenda, is it any surprise that he gets low marks for policies that have nothing to do with Iraq?

By several measures, metropolitan Baltimore's economy is doing better than fine. In 2010, median household income was nearly $15,000 higher than the national average, and during the last decade, real incomes grew even as they shrank nationally. Metro employment increased, while it declined across the country, and when the economy went south, the region's unemployment rate remained lower than that of most if its metropolitan peers. But as legitimately rosy as these numbers are, they mask - as averages will do - the steep opportunity challenges facing many of the region's residents.

WASHINGTON -- The poverty rate fell in 1994 for the first time in four years, the Census Bureau reported yesterday, but median income remained stuck -- a sign that gains from a surging economy are not getting through to all middle-class households.The census also found that nearly one in seven Americans -- 39.7 million people -- lacked health insurance in 1994, about the same as the previous year.Single mothers and black families gained ground in 1994, but full-time workers and single people living alone were losers.

The chasm between Howard County's richest and poorest neighborhoods is widening. At the top in the state's wealthiest county is a census tract that includes most of Clarksville, where the median household earned $117,101 in 1999, according to new Census 2000 data. At the bottom are Ellicott City's neighborhoods bounded by U.S. 29, U.S. 40, Interstate 70 and the county line, where the median household earned $41,237. Those two census tracts held the same ranks 10 years earlier. But while both gained financially during the 1990s, Clarksville gained more - 15.5 percent compared with 5.5 percent in the Ellicott City tract, when adjusted for inflation.

MITCHELLVILLE -- Oliver and Frances Henderson have all the suburban trappings a couple in their mid-30s might want: the five-bedroom, $250,000 brick home on a quiet Prince George's County cul-de-sac, the lush lawn, the two cars and the two careers to pay for it all.They're black, they're proud -- and they're prosperous. And they are not alone.According to newly released census figures, Maryland has the nation's most affluent and highly educated black population.Of all states that were at least 10 percent black or had a black population of more than 1 million, Maryland ranked No. 1 with a median black household income of $30,746.

As Randallstown residents crawl back and forth along Liberty Road, with its jammed fast food drive-throughs and aging strip malls, they have increasingly cast an envious eye north to Owings Mills -- a place where a family can sit down for dinner at TGI Friday's, where the under-caffeinated can drink a Caramel Macchiato at Starbucks, where moviegoers can gaze unobstructed from stadium seats. They're not exactly the Ritz, but symbols of the pretty-good life loom large in this part of suburbia, where Baltimore County's booming black middle class finds that its community's reputation and the new businesses there haven't kept up with its growing wealth.
