New York State just joined a pretty impressive list. Honestly, it shouldn't come as a shock for people who live here.

The World Population Review recently analyzed all of the states, and ranked them from the richest to poorest. This is determined by looking at each of the states’ poverty rates, median household incomes and their costs of living. This also analyzes each state further by looking at their education levels and life expectancies, to examine why some states are worse off than others.

So, where did New York State rank?

1) New York is the third-richest state in the United States by GDP, with a GDP of $1,705,127,000.

GDP, or gross domestic product, is a reflection of each state's economy. The GDP refers to the state's overall distribution of goods. The GDP of the U.S. is $21.7 million


2) New York's median household income is the 15th-highest among all states at $72,108.
