The Los Angeles area still may be a glamour capital, but as a place to make money, Orange County is looking better. In an analysis released Wednesday by UCLA, Orange County edged up two slots to rank 25th among 318 U.S. urban areas in personal income two years ago. Los Angeles ranked 100th. The analysis, part of a quarterly UCLA report, found that the county's per capita personal income was $32,541 in 1998, up 5.9% from a year earlier when it ranked 27th.
