When it comes to the richest zip codes in Louisiana, you're probably thinking bigger zip codes in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas take up the entire top 10.
While those areas certainly take up quite a few spots on the list, you might be surprised to see what other zipcodes are sprinkled throughout the top 10 and top 20.

From namecensus.com -
"We use the mean household income for each zip code, which can be found on the latest American Community Survey (ACS) 5-year estimates.
The ACS is an ongoing survey conducted by the US Census Bureau and, because it's updated yearly, is more up-to-date than the Decennial Survey."
