There’s a recent article from World Population Review that shares a list of the richest states in America.

They said, “The state's median household income varies significantly due to the job market, costs of living, and overall economic health. In 2019, the median U.S. household income was $65,712. The District of Columbia had the highest with $92,266, and Mississippi had the lowest with $45,792. Generally, educational attainment correlates with median household incomes.”
