The American Community Survey (ACS), a biennial report from the Census Department, was released this morning. Among the 50 states, New Hampshire fared well. In 2011, New Hampshire’s median income of $67,308 ranked second in the nation after Maryland — dropping one rung from 2009, when the state ranked first, with a median household income of $68.187.
The national median is $50,443.
Other high-ranking states Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
New Hampshire also ranked well when it came to economic disparity. Measured with a number called the “Gini Index,” income inequality was lowest in Wyoming, Idaho, and Alaska.
