List of Connecticut locations by per capita income

In terms of per capita income, Connecticut is the wealthiest state in the United States of America. As at 2019, Connecticut had a per capita income of $44,496.[1]

Despite its high per capita income, Connecticut is still mainly a middle to upper-middle class state. Much of Connecticut’s wealth is concentrated in lower Fairfield County. Several zip codes in Fairfield Country are amongst the wealthiest in the United States. Other wealthy areas above the state average include the suburbs surrounding Hartford and New Haven, many of the towns along coastal Connecticut, and areas of Litchfield County.
