We know that there are rich neighborhoods and poor neighborhoods. We know that different realities coexist in the same city, marked by fire by an absolutely determining factor: the income of the citizens who live in it. And since we all know that the rich live in Salamanca and the not so rich in Carabanchel , we are not at all surprised by the data that the Tax Agency has made public this Thursday.
The highest income is located north of the capital of Spain, in La Moraleja: 113,642 per year . It is more than eight times what they enter the Carrús, in Elche (Alicante), the most humble area of the country, with an average income per person of 13,286 euros.
These are the income statistics by zip code. An information package that the Tax Agency has published for the first time and that offers, in detail, the average income according to the postal code in which we are.
Income by zip code, information from the Tax Agency
What the Tax Agency has made public are the data by postal code of the main cities of the country. This includes those that have more than 200,000 inhabitants or, if they have fewer inhabitants, have more than 100,000 personal income tax returns or a total gross income of more than 2,200 million euros .
It is possible, therefore, that if you live in a city or a small municipality, you cannot obtain the data in question. However, those who live in large cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia or Seville will have the opportunity to find out what the average income is in their neighborhood and compare it with that of other neighboring neighborhoods or with those of other capitals.
To see this information more clearly, the newspaper El País has enabled a search engine , in which you only have to include the postal code of your city or neighborhood (because within each city there are usually different postal codes) to obtain the data. You can do it here and get a comparison with other areas.
