Success is in the eye of the beholder...unless you are Zippia. Then you base success on poverty level, income and unemployment rate..and Maine's most successful city is...


Zippia looked at information from the 2010-2014 American Community Survey:

  • Poverty Level
  • Median Household Income
  • Unemployment Rate

Based on those numbers, the most successful city in Maine is:

South Portland

Population: 25,154
Median Income: $53,614
Poverty Level: 10.3%
Unemployment Rate: 5.2%

I was shocked that Portland wasn't the most successful Maine city. Nope. Portland did make the top 10 (#8), but not number one.
