HONOLULU (KHON2) — If you were born between 1997 and 2012, you’re part of Gen Z. That means the oldest members of this generation turn 25 this year. They’re earning a little above $20 per hour on average, according to a new study by finance publication GOBankingRates.

The median earnings vary significantly across different states. Can you guess what it is in Hawaii?

To find out how much Gen Z makes in every state, GOBankingRates looked at various factors, including median hourly earnings for all occupations in every state. These figures were then compared to the national median hourly earnings to give each state a salary index.

Using the national median weekly earnings, GOBankingRates was able to determine the incomes of different age groups within Gen Z: 16- to 24-year-olds, 16- to 19-year-olds and 20- to 24-year-olds.
