History

The department of Hauts-de-Seine was created in 1968, from parts of the former départements of Seine and Seine-et-Oise.

In the 1990s and early 2000s, the Hauts-de-Seine received national attention as the result of a corruption scandal concerning the misuse of public funds provided for the department's housing projects. Implicated were former minister and former President of the general council of the Hauts-de-Seine, Charles Pasqua, and other personalities of the RPR party. (See corruption scandals in the Paris region.)

Economy

Hauts-de-Seine is France's second wealthiest département (behind Paris) and one of Europe's richest areas. Its GDP per capita was € 62,374 in 2003, according to INSEE official figures.
