California now has 13,445 people who are worth more than $US30 million, while New York has only 9,530. Texas (6,475) and Florida (4,650) followed in third and fourth place.
However, when it came to cities, New York City has the largest amount of high net worth individuals in the United States with a population of 8,655. It was followed distantly by San Francisco with 5,460 and Los Angeles with 5,135.
Another interesting tidbit from the report was that the Dakotas saw a significant increase in their millionaire and billionaire population from 2013. The population of people earning more than $US30 million swelled by 14.3% in North Dakota and 13.3% in South Dakota — the largest and second largest increase in the country, respectively.
Though Wealth-X said these numbers were fairly small — a rise in 10 ultra net worth individuals for North Dakota and 20 for South Dakota — it could mean that existing businesses are becoming increasingly profitable.
In total, the US is home to 69,560 people who are worth more than $US30 million with a total combined wealth of $US9.63 billion.
America also has the largest population of these high net worth individuals in the world. For instance, there are more people worth over $US30 million in California alone than there are in the entire United Kingdom, according to Wealth-X.
