February 2016: Exploring Income Inequality in New Jersey

In these posts, we perform a series of analyses to understand if household income is distributed unequally throughout New Jersey, compared to other states in the country. Using data from the 2010-2014 5-year American Community Survey, we will explore two variables related to household income distribution, the Gini Index, and the 80/20 Household Income Ratio. Read the posts below to learn how household income is distributed within our counties and neighborhoods and which can be considered unequal.
