We made it on a list….a good list!  We can hold our heads up high and know that America’s most financially successful people live in Connecticut!! At least according to a new survey by GoBankingRates.

The GoBankingRates survey of the 50 states and the District of Columbia was partly based on the average annual income of the top 1 percent of people and the average income of the bottom 99 percent.

It considered the states’ poverty rates and the percentage of the population in the upper, middle and lower class.

Connecticut’s top 1 percent of income earners had $2.4 million and its bottom 99 percent $56,445. Connecticut residents counted among their numbers 100,754 millionaire households and 12 billionaire households.

Here are the Top 10 States!
