AUSTIN - Mapping company ESRI has created a ranking of the wealthiest areas in Austin.

To rank the area's wealthiest ZIP codes, ESRI researchers delved deep into geographic, census and demographic data to build a profile of the typical resident in these ZIP codes and how they live.

Statistics about income, home prices, net worth and more are considered when figuring wealth. Wealth isn't always reflected through real estate. ZIP 78704 ranked 63 out of 69 ZIP codes tracked, even though it is the ZIP with the most prestige.

Here are the ten wealthiest zip codes in the Austin area and their median home values:
