Household Characteristics (Richest vs Poorest)

I have taken this set of bar charts from a Census report (pg 10) that uses data from the 2006 Current Population Survey. The lowest quintile is the bottom 20% poorest households with annual income less than $19,179 in 2005 while the highest quintile is the top 20% richest households with annual income more than $91,706 in 2005. Something extra that was in the report but not the bar charts: while 49.9% of all households were in the suburbs, only 39.0% of the poorest households were in the suburbs compared to 61.5% of the richest. {Click on the image to take a closer look} Household Income Characteristics magnafing glass
