How much money do millennials make in different states?

There are plenty of reasons why millennials might consider living in a different state. Some want adventure, some want to be closer, or away from relatives, and for some, it might be home affordability.

For many, a job might pay more or the same in a different state. Mix that with cheaper rent or home prices and you've got no reason NOT to pick up your bags and go. 

HowMuch recently released data from the U.S. Census Bureau which points out, how much money on average, people who were born between 1982 and 2000 make in different states. They adjusted average earnings with the cost of living in each state to come up with a map

Turns out, those in the Northeast and Midwest are earning more than their counterparts in the West and South on average. 

Millennials in Massachusetts, on average, take home the biggest paychecks at $80,000+. Minnesota and North Dakota followed respectably in 2nd and 3rd place. New Mexico took the last place at an average income of $51,000.
