Earnings Mobility Between 2000 and 2005 - Interactive Version
This is my interactive version of my static infographic on earnings mobility (found here: http://www.visualizing.org/visualizations/earnings-mobility-between-2000...). This is my first foray into interactive graphics, so it's more or less me playing around than a serious graphic; in fact, I think the static version does a better version of presenting the information. However, I would appreciate any and all comments.
Earning mobility measures the probability that a worker will change position in the earnings distribution from one year to the next. One of the findings shown in this static visualization is that workers at the top of the earnings distribution are very likely to remain at the top of the distribution five years later.
