Congratulations Maryland, You're Now The Wealthiest State

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.
