Citizens' Housing and Planning Association: Pulling Apart: A State-by-State Analysis of Income Trends (CBPP)

Pulling Apart: A State-by-State Analysis of Income Trends (CBPP)

According to this Center on Budget and Policy Priorities report, "the gaps between the incomes of the richest households and low- and middle-income households are wide and growing in most states, according to a major new report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and the Economic Policy Institute that examines inequality at the state level. Across all states, the average income of the richest fifth of households was eight times that of the poorest fifth as of the late 2000s.  New Mexico, Arizona, California, Georgia, New York, Louisiana, Texas, Massachusetts, Illinois, and Mississippi face the largest gaps."

To read more summary of the report, please read the press release in full detail at the CBPP's website.
