Wisconsin households must make at least $117,929 to be in state’s top 20%

In Wisconsin, households must earn a minimum of $117,929 per year to be among the top one-fifth of the state’s income earners, according to a new 24/7 Wall St. analysis examining the threshold of “richness” in all 50 states.
The total share of household income in Wisconsin controlled by that top 20% of earners is 47.8% , 24/7 Wall St. reports. In the nation as a whole, the richest 20% of households earn at least $131,350 annually, according to the analysis.
And to be in the top 5% of income earners in Wisconsin, households need to make at least $202,582 per year. The state’s current median household income stands at $64,168 annually, the report says.
To determine the income needed to be classified as rich in each state, 24/7 Wall St. examined household income data from a 2019 survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. In those states where the top 20% income threshold is higher than most – such as Massachusetts – residents face a higher cost of living, the analysis concluded.
