The US cities will lead the way into adding the largest number of households with annual disposable income US$100,000+ over 2013-2018, with seven of them on the top 25 list.

Besides Chinese metropolises, which will see a rapid income growth rebuffing the worst of the economic slowdown, cities in Russia and Central Asia are also forecast to demonstrate a rise of over 60% in the number of high income households.
