Minnesota is the land of 10,000 lakes, but it’s got 10 times as many millionaires.
The Phoenix Global Wealth Monitor ranking of states shows Minnesota is now #14 on the rankings of millionaires per capita, up three spots from last year. The biggest jump, however, is in North Dakota, which jumped 14 spots with its 13,494 millionaires.
Maryland has the most millionaires per capita — 7.7 percent. Mississippi, which is at the bottom of almost every survey on any subject, has the fewest.
Here’s the full list.
