1. Damn!!! I am moving to Alaska

I put 100 billion annual income, single, white, college educated.

and the result was;

Based on your household income and the number of people in your household, YOU are in the UPPER income tier, along with 24% of adults in ANCHORAGE.


You are welcome to stop by for some coffee, but please do it after 10am when Gates finishes trimming the bushes and Bezos is done washing the dishes.

5. I won't quibble. PEW states: "See where you are in the distribution of Americans by income tier"...

… so their heading "middle class" was their shorthand, correct or not, for income tier."...
