New Jersey is no longer the wealthiest state according to new data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Maryland, you’ve finally arrived!
Maryland’s median household income rose 2.2% to top New Jersey’s at $65,144. Good old NJ is still second with $64,470. Filling out the top five were richy-richertons Connecticut, $63,422; Hawaii, $61,160, and New Hampshire, $59,683.
All things considered we’d rather be in… well, Hawaii would do nicely.
