Are you living among the well-off in one of your state’s wealthiest cities? Or are you — and your neighbors — struggling to get by?

You can find out the answer by scanning GOBankingRates list of the wealthiest cities in each state. According to GOBankingRates:

New York City and San Francisco might come to mind, but big businesses and high rents don’t necessarily translate to wealth for a city’s residents.

The cities that earned a spot on the list of the wealthiest cities in each state have both high median home values and median incomes, according to GOBankingRates.

GOBankingRates says these are the wealthiest cities in each state — note that South Dakota and Maine were excluded from the list due to a lack of sufficient data:
