The Bottom States In Terms of Wealth Concentration

The richest Americans continue to live in the wealthiest states. The top five richest states are California, New York, Texas, Florida and Washington. These states have a combined GDP of $2.4 trillion, which is more than three times the GDP of the poorest state, Mississippi. The bottom five states in terms of wealth concentration are Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, Arkansas and West Virginia. Their GDPs are $263 billion, $269 billion, $231 billion, $176 billion and $162 billion respectively.

This wealth inequality is particularly troubling because it is linked to economic hardship for low-income people in these states. States with high levels of wealth inequality also have high levels of poverty and unemployment. Inequality begets inequality, and the cycle of poverty and unemployment can be difficult to break free from.

Our study found that the richest Americans tend to live in states with high income taxes. This suggests that it is not only the wealthy who benefit from high taxes, but also middle- and lower-income earners. In fact, our study found that a 10% increase in state income tax rates was associated with a 2% decrease in median family income across all states.
