MAPPED: The richest person in every state

Forbes has released its third annual list of the richest person in each state and the cumulative wealth amounts to over $US745 billion.

We’ve mapped out each state to show you every state’s richest resident, along with a breakdown of their individual net worth.

The list includes leaders from several industries such as Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates (tech), Walmart heirs Jim and Alice Walton (retail), Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett (finance), and more.

It’s worth noting that some of the country’s wealthiest individuals — like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos — are not the wealthiest resident of their own state, and therefore are not included on this list.
