No one argues that being in the top 1% of income earners makes you rich.

But the annual income that gets you there depends on where you live.

The Economic Policy Institute calculated how much money puts a household in the top 1% of income earners in each of the 50 US states. For the US overall, the income threshold required to be in the 1% of earners is $389,436, pre-tax. In 12 states, including Connecticut, California, New York, and Texas, a household must earn more than that to be in the state’s highest earners.

Below, see what it takes to be in the top 1% — and top .01%, just in case you were feeling flush — of every state, listed from lowest to highest annual income needed.
