Welcome to the Plutocracy: House Edition

So, earlier I posted a map showing the average estimated net worth of the Senators from each state. Here is the companion map for the House of Representatives.

Like the Senate wealth map that I posted earlier, this map was constructed on TargetMap using data from the Center for Responsive Politics. As before, these are estimates of net worth, and the numbers I have used are the average of the minimum and maximum estimates. It should be noted that the difference between the minimum and maximum estimates is typically quite large.

I have used the same ranges for the color schemes on the two maps, so you can compare them directly.
