This Is How Much Money People Make on Average in Your State, Data Shows

A new study tabulated the figures using data from the U.S. Census Bureau.

Financial literacy isn't just knowing which tools and services to use to save, invest, and budget for your household. It's also accruing and perpetually updating a breadth of knowledge that informs the decisions you make in those areas. Far too few consider this data when setting or executing important financial goals, and many end up paying a hefty price.

One of the most basic bits of money knowledge to have in your toolbelt is how much the average worker is making in your field, position, and region. As we all know, a dollar goes a lot further in some places than others. Finance news site GoBankingRates recently conducted a study that utilized five-year estimates from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2018 American Community Survey. With this data, they found the average income for households in all 50 states. Read on to see how you stack up compared to others in your state.
