Here is the richest person in each U.S. state

How much are the wealthiest people in each state making? More than ever, a new report from Forbes found. Most of the people on the list were on it last year — and collectively, they’re worth $682 billion more than last year. Overall, the net worth of each person averages $14.4 billion in the 2017 listing, up from $12.6 billion each in 2016.

A silver lining for people not in the 1%: of the 50 top earners in each state, 35 of them have self-made fortunes and only 15 inherited their massive wealth. Many of their respective fortunes were made in industries specific to the states where they reside.
