What exactly does it mean to be among the top one percent of U.S. earners?
According to a 2013 Economic Policy Institute report, "to be in the top one percent nationally, a family needs an income of $389,436." However, the threshold varies significantly among states. In Connecticut, for example, you need an annual income of $659,979 to be in the one percent. In New Mexico, it's $231,276.
Keep in mind that these numbers just represent the threshold — the average income of the top one percent nationwide is $1.15 million.
People in the rest of the nation, on the other hand, earn an average of $45,567 a year. That means that, in 2013, "the top one percent of families earned 25.3 times as much income as the bottom 99 percent," the EPI reports.
