Maryland is America’s Richest State Apparently

Crabs

If you judge by median household incomes, that is.

Maryland takes first place, with New Jersey following right behind ($70,545 v. $70,378), according to new census data released yesterday. Elsewhere in the region, Virginia grabs spot number eight with $61,233, and the District of Columbia has the twelfth highest income with $57,936—both of which still sit above the nationwide number of $52,029.

I'll just go ahead and post the top 15 states below the jump.
