List of U.S. states and territories by income inequality

The United States has the greatest income disparity among developed nations.[1] However, the inequality indicators vary considerably from state to state. States that have a high concentration of skilled jobs, implement regressive tax policies and have weaker worker protections in general tend to have greater income inequalities. As of 2019, the highest inequality may be observed in the states around New York City; many Southern states also have high income disparities, as do California and Massachusetts.
