From middle to upper: US states where it is easiest to get rich

The term “class” was first used widely in the 19th century, replacing words such as “rank” and “order” to better define how economics and money actively form social groups. The social class is still used to characterize a group of people occupying the same level in the economic ladder. Today, social classes are divided into three main groups: the working class, the middle class and the upper class. Writes about this GOBankingRates.

Income plays the largest role in determining class structure; however, the amount of money needed to upgrade to a new class can be difficult to earn.

To find out where it is easiest to move from the middle class to the upper, changes in different states over different years were analyzed. For each state, the study showed a change from last year and a five-year change in the number of people with an average income.

The “middle class” was defined as a range of income from $ 35 to $ 000.
