2005 US Income Distribution

More Census data! This time it is the U.S. income distribution for 2005 showing the number of households up to $250,000. (I have since added more graphs that include incomes above $250,000: 2005 US Income Distribution Part 2 and 2005 US Income Distribution Part 3) {Click on the graph to take a closer look} US Income Distribution 2005 magnifying glass

While the original Census data can be found in U.S. Census Bureau's Current Population Survey Table HINC-06. Income Distribution to $250,000 or More for Households I needed to calculate the number of households in $10,000 increments for this graph. (That calculation can be found here: Census household income distribution. Besides the income distribution for 2005, I added 2004 as a bonus. It can be viewed by anyone with a Google Account.)
