The research firm Wealth-X recently released a report listing the richest person in each U.S. state.

This new rich list shows that 41 states are home to billionaires who obtained their wealth in diverse ways, ranging from the financial sector to energy to media, according to the Daily Mail.

Unsurprisingly, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and Larry Ellison nabbed the top spots for their states.

The report found that California and New York are the states with the highest number of mega-millionaires, while Vermont and New Hampshire have not produced a single billionaire.

Here are the richest U.S. residents, in ascending order of wealth.
