What state in the U.S. has highest concentration of millionaires?
The answer is: 2. Maryland
Phoenix Market International, a global marketing services firm, released its annual ranking of millionaires per capital by state in January. The report on its website says Maryland stayed atop the ranking of states with the highest percentage of millionaires per capita. Other states had more millionaires, but Maryland had the biggest concentration. According to the survey, Maryland had more than 169-thousand millionaire households in 2013, or 7.7% of its population. The survey showed a little less than four percent of Kentucky residents are millionaires, Indiana is right at four percent, and millionaires made up about four and a half percent of Ohio's population.
