Think you might squeak onto the bottom rung of the top 1 percent? If you have to wonder, you probably don’t belong, as they say. You’d have to earn $389,436 per year to make the cut nationally. But if you don’t qualify, you might be among the top 1 percent in a smaller pond: your state.

Read on to find out. We’ve ranked the 50 states and Washington, D.C., from bottom to top by average annual income of the top 1 percent of earners. You’ll also find:

  • Entry level earnings for the top 1 percent.
  • Average earnings of bottom 99 percent (everyone else).
  • Top 1 percent’s share of total income in the state.
