Per Capita Income by State 2020

On average, the everyday American citizen rakes in around $51,000 in a given year. Per capita income is calculated by looking at the annual salaries of people across the nation and then finding the average dollar amount of everyone’s income. This is on a much larger scale than determining the income rates per capita in each state on an individual level, but the process is the same.

Household incomes per capita are often dependent on the economic climate in a given year. Take a look at the following per capita income rates per state and compare the way the dollar amounts change over the years. For example, Maryland consistently remained the state with the highest per capita income rate in 2015, 2016, and 2017. Likewise, West Virginia was the state to fall into last place over the course of those same three years. Here are the fifty states and their respective per capita income for the years 2015, 2016, and 2017 for comparison.

Here are the 10 states with the highest average income:

  1. New Jersey ($114,691)
  2. Connecticut ($113,031)
  3. Massachusetts ($111,498)
  4. Maryland ($111,417)
  5. California ($106,916)
  6. Hawaii ($103,780)
