More than half of those 15,000 new residents claimed 77007 as their home. Combined, the ZIP codes for the area represent an estimated 133,000 people, up from about 118,000 five years ago.
Meanwhile, household incomes also rose more quickly in the Heights-River Oaks-Montrose area as compared to Harris County, according to the ACS data.
Incomes rose the fastest in the Heights area, ZIP code 77008, with households reaching a median income of $108,644, a 44% increase in five years.
These figures are from the ACS' 5-year statistical survey, which contains sampled data from 2014-2019. The 2014 data point reflects 2009-2014 survey findings. Because these are survey findings, a margin of error is also a factor.
