>Connecticut remains the wealthiest state in the nation

>The bad news?
Connecticut’s per capita personal income dropped by 3.3 percent from 2008 to 2009. That was among the worst 10 declines state-by-state, and exceeded the national average drop of 2.6 percent.
The reality that we pass over in dwelling on Connecticut’s problems?
We are still the wealthiest state in the nation, by a significant margin, $54,397 per capita, compared to #2 New Jersey’s $50,313, and a whole-different-world margin above poorest-state Mississippi’s $30,103.

Connecticut’s 8.2 percent unemployment rate was better than the national average of 9.3 percent, and far better than Michigan, which was hammered by auto industry woes and came in at 13.6 percent.
