Want to know where you fall in America’s class system? There’s a calculator that can help you figure that out. The Pew Research Center’s updated calculator asks for your location along with some economic data. In return, it can give you a sense whether you are in the upper, middle or lower class.
Users can also compare themselves to other Americans by selecting level of education, age, race/ethnicity and martial status. Location is so critical to determining where you fall in the American class structure. For instance, a couple with a household income of $100,000 in New York is considered middle class. In El Paso, Texas, that same couple would be in the upper class tier.
Do you want to know where you fit? What would you do with the information? Could it motivate some to work harder to improve which class they are associated with?
