      Of course. Very few people there, sometimes a retirement herd.
      Fuck Connecticut and Calif.
      LA is pretty low, so that's good.

      How do you still make an average annual income of $1.9M in retirement?

      It's average so the billionaires in each state throw it off.

    Avg income for a 99th percentile is such an uninterpretable metric. What a terrible visualization too. Everyone will just see the purple number and then assume that is what it takes to be in the 1%.

    I guess Top 10% would fall exponentially down and it would nullify the outliers and give us a better idea of top earnings.

    Of course it's high. 99% of us will never crack the top 1%. 🤯

    Wow! I feel poor. Atleast L67 to sneak into the 1% in WA.

    Why should you limit it to your state?

    Also what I want to know more, who is the in the 1% of government assistance?

    1.69 is so low for ca. Does not reflect the bay.
