About

Income inequality and wealth inequality have taken center stage in many discussions about economic policy in the United States. We provide insights about geographic differences in both income and wealth inequality. Where do the rich live? And those below the poverty line? Which zip codes have the highest income inequality? If you earn the U.S. median income (currently about $52,000 a year), how do you stack up against your neighbors? Where do we find people with low income but substantial wealth? You can find all these questions answered in our reports and interactive map.
