Marylanders households bring in the most income in the United States, reported the Washington Business Journal.

The state's median income for a family of four comes out to $105,348, according to numbers recently released from the Department of Health and Human Services.

It's the first time Marylanders have been named top earners, the Journal reported.

The annual list has typically put Maryland behind Connecticut or New Jersey. However, this year Marylanders' incomes increased more than $3,000 on average.

Virginia ranked sixth, with households earning an average of $90,109, and D.C. is close behind, coming in seventh with a median income of $87,902.

The data is based on three years of Census data.
