Visualizing American Income Levels by Age Group

There are two commonly held beliefs around income and age:

1) Earning trajectory is largely determined by the time a person is 35-years-old
2) Income is positively correlated with age

How do these beliefs stand up to the actual income data? As it turns out, quite well.

Today’s data, from the IPUMS.org Current Population Survey, is a detailed look at income by age group.
