Average income of the different states is pretty easy to find. They change pretty slowly.
Interestingly, the rank order varies pretty dramatically between median household income and per capita income.
For instance, Florida is #6 in per capita income and #37 in median household income. I expect the logical explanation is the smaller average size of a household in Florida, perhaps due to the large number of retirees.
Well, CA just hit number one for poverty rate, at least using the latest way of calculating it.
I discovered this morning 900,000 people have left The Peoples Republic of Illinois over the last 15 years. I am soon to be another one.
