Median disposable income (OECD countries / US states)
If we look at some of the wealthier American states, we find that some of them are well above where the US ranked as a whole in international comparisons. For example, New Hampshire’s median income is 126 percent of the US median income. If we consider this information in light of the fact that the US median disposable income (according to the OECD) is $32,075, then we might conclude that New Hampshire comes in at an internationally comparable income of $40,400. That’s comparable to Norway and Switzerland. In other words, taken on their own, states like New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Washington, and Colorado, are among the richest places in the world, by far.
Extending this same analysis to all states, it looks like this:
