It might not make you Daddy Warbucks anymore, but a million dollars still is a pretty exclusive level of wealth. Only 5.8% of the country, or about 7.2 million households, qualify as actual millionaires. To reach that bar, you must have investable assets of $1 million or more, excluding the value of real estate, employer-sponsored retirement plans and business partnerships. When imagining where America's millionaires live, most people probably think of California and New York. But although those states have their fair share of millionaires in terms of raw numbers, they don't have the highest concentrations of rich households. It turns out there are numerous states with higher percentages of well-off households than New York or California, several of which probably will surprise you. And don't forget that between living costs and taxes, a million dollars goes much further in some states than others. Here's a look at the millionaire ratings for all 50 states (and the District of Columbia), based on the percentage of millionaire households in each. Just for good measure, we're also providing the richest residents of each state, as well as important tax and cost-of-living information.

Charles De Vaulx and his colleagues at International Value Advisers, including founder Charles de Lardemelle, have a deserved reputation as quintessential stockpickers. Despite the fund’s go-anywhere mandate, de Vaulx and de Lardemelle have lately struggled to find attractive investments—IVA won’t buy anything that isn’t at a big discount to intrinsic value—and the firm’s two funds are closed to new investors. Soon, perhaps, there may be more opportunities to buy, given the macroeconomic conditions that de Vaulx outlined in a recent conversation with Barron’s.
