America's wealthiest (and poorest) states (Les Christie, September 16, 2010, CNN Money)

New Hampshire is the state with the highest median income in the nation, according to a new U.S. Census Bureau report.[...]

None of these statistics reflect regional or local cost differences, which can be immense. A $50,000 salary in Manchester N.H., for instance, is roughly equivalent to one of $38,000 in Tupelo, Miss.

A Mississippian earning $38,000 can live about as well as a New Yorker in pricey Manhattan with a salary of more than $93,000.
