History:

Raritan Town was originally established as a subdivision within Bridgewater Township on April 3, 1868. After a series of bitter lawsuits between Raritan and Bridgewater in the 1930s and 1940s, the Legislature allowed Raritan to become an independent Borough on May 12, 1948. The new borough incorporated the old town and an additional portion of Bridgewater Township.

Factors used in creating the index are income, educational achievement, and occupation of persons within the selected ZIP code. Since this index is based on the population of an entire Zip code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
