These 13 states have the best savers

Americans could be saving more across the board.

According to a 2016 GOBankingRates survey, 69% have less than $1,000 in their savings account and 34% have no savings at all.

Of course, some U.S. states are faring better than others, GOBankingRates found. Take Vermont, where 83% of residents have started saving and about half have more than $1,000 stashed away.

Below, we highlighted the 13 states with the largest percentage of residents with savings. We also included the percentage of residents with more than $1,000 in the bank (from GOBankingRates) and the median household income in each state (from the U.S. Census Bureau).
