Ranked: U.S. states by the number of billionaires, 2023

Unsurprisingly, more than half of the billionaires in the U.S. live in one of four states (California, New York, Florida, and Texas). These four billionaire havens are home to 472 of the wealthiest Americans. There are 759 billionaires living in the United States. They live in 43 of the 50 states. California leads the country with the most ultra-wealthy residents – the richest is Oracle cofounder Larry Ellison (who is worth an estimated $134.2 billion).

The state that’s home to the second-most members of billionaires is New York. A total of 135 billionaires live in the Empire State. No New York resident is richer than Michael Bloomberg ($96.3 billion), the co-founder of Bloomberg LP and former mayor of New York City. Another eight states host just one billionaire. They include Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Rhode Island, South Carolina, and South Dakota.
