Income It Takes to Be Considered Rich in Every State


To determine the income it takes for a family to be considered rich in each state, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data on the lower limit of income for the highest earning 20% of households in each state from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2018 American Community Survey. Data on regional price parity, or cost of living, came from the Bureau of Economic Analysis and are for 2017. All data are for the most recent year available.
