SUITLAND, MD – June 15, 2018

The national average for household income according to the Census Bureau is $75,885.

Mississippi, which ranks highest in poverty in the U.S., ranked last, with an average of $56,358.

The District of Columbia, which has the highest minimum wage at $12.50, comes in at a hefty $110,614.

Only 4 States break the six-figure barrier for household earnings: Maryland ($100,071), New Jersey ($101,634), (Connecticut: $102,616) and DC ($110,614)

However, that figure could be a bit deceiving. They should take into account state income taxes. If you net the state taxes out, the picture with household earnings will be quite different.

Only seven states do not have income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington, and Wyoming. South Dakota has the lowest average household earnings among them.
