For this Tidy Tuesday, I decided to try my hand at interactive visualization. This week’s data comes from the Urban Institute and includes all sorts of interesting and important demographic data on wealth and income distribution. For the purposes of this visualization, I focused purely on income distribution.
Addendum: I was asked on Twitter what this breakdown looked like within the top 5%.
do you have top 3 top 2 top 1 and top .5 and top .01 possibly available too? id be curious to see— Aaron Eisenberg (@ae53) May 6, 2021
This information was not available within this data set, but I found more data from the Economic Policy Institute that allows us to answer this question.
The code is available in my GitHub repository.
