US Income Distribution
by Griffin_Nicoll, published
The #OCCUPYWALLSTREET (and other places) protests got me interested in looking up some real* income data, so I made a visualization. Each unit of height is $2000.
* Data from census.gov/hhes/www/cpstables/032011/hhinc/new06_000.htm
I used linear interpolation and the initial data only has 42 groupings, so these numbers aren't super accurate. It would be great if someone knew where some better data is. Data on net worth would also be interesting, but I'll save that for another day.

Try doing this for wealth distribution instead of income ..... MODEL PRINT OUT OF RANGE
reminds me of:
The height is income, and each column represents a fixed percentage of the population arranged in order of income. You can think of this as what 49 households would make. If they represented the united states in total.
