Feeling stuck in your career? Got an idea for an entrepreneurial venture? Thinking about relocating your company to new digs? Well, you know what they say – The key to success is “location, location, location.” So, if you’re considering making a move for a career boost, you’ll be interested in the results of a recent study by financial services provider GoBankingRates.
The recently-released report ranks the nation’s wealthiest and most successful states, based on these factors:
- Average income of the top one percent
- Average income of the bottom 99 percent
- Poverty rate
- Percentage of population in the upper, middle and lower classes
- Number of millionaires and billionaires
- Ratio of millionaires to total households
Topping the list – Connecticut. Dubbed the Constitution State (because it’s believed that ideas for the writing of the US Constitution were drawn from the state’s first constitution), it’s home to a upward of 101,000 millionaire households and 12 billionaires. In fact, the average income of the top one-percenters in Connecticut is an enviable $2.4 million. But even those not drawing seven figures are doing relatively well. The average income of the other 99 percent there is a very respectable $56,445.
“Living in a state that offers families a richer life and boasts a fair share of people who are thriving financially might help you achieve the financial success you’ve always wanted,” GoBankingRates says.
