California has more rich towns (23) than any state. New Jersey is second with 18.

NJ has more wealthy places than Texas, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio combined. US News wrote that Massachusetts is the top state for education and NJ is second. There is a distinct correlation between wealth and education. NJ has more suburbs than any state.

New York is third with 13 rich towns and is #22 for education.

California is a very wealthy state, but its estimated poverty rate is 19 percent. The poverty rate is the highest among states. California, with 12 percent of the American population, has one in three of the nations welfare recipients. The middle class is leaving California. California is #21 for education.

You'd get an odd amount of poop talk, however.
It's deceptive in some ways though...

because if you break it down by county southern MD and Northern VA tend to rate very high on the list.
Does this take cost of living into account

California resembles the Hunger Games

The Bay Area and L.A. have clusters of the greatest wealth in America, much of the interior of the State is suffering unspeakable poverty. And then there's the homelessness.
Was recently in LA and San Francisco.

What a dump they've both become. Homeless people everywhere. Trash everywhere. Tent cities everywhere. Legit human shit on the streets.

It's tough....

to go to Cali and not see rampant homelessness. Groups of people huddled in underpasses. Sidewalks filled with them. I have to go to SD frequently and they are all over a couple of the city parks.

I went for a jog down along the waterfront facing the Coronado Hotel and I literally had to avoid the homeless who were sleeping on the sidewalk.

Last time I was in Seattle, the open grassy area at the end of the Pike Place Market was completely filled with homeless.

It is worse than I have ever seen it before.

It's gonna get worse.

if you were homeless, wouldn't you want to live in SD vs NYC? When I lived in SD, they were all over the boardwalk in Pacific Beach and down to Mission. Then you'd have multiple people living out of RVs/campers in the public parks. Not sure if they changed their overnight parking rules or not.
If your going to be homeless

there are worse places than SD.
To be fair..  
FatMan in Charlotte : 8/22/2019 1:43 pm : link
Portland and Seattle are teeming with homeless as well.

Can't imagine having belongings constantly damp is a draw.
Charlottesville has a homeless problem too...  
Dunedin81 : 8/22/2019 2:07 pm : link
during the Occupy movement (not a criticism) folks came to Charlottesville from the surrounding areas because charities were giving out food to the campers. A lot of them simply never left, and a few more have joined in. I'd imagine some of these more progressive cities act as a magnet because there are more services, governmental and charitable, available there, and in places like SD the climate is particularly hospitable.
