State Inequality Visualizations

One of our graduate students here at the University of Oregon, John Voorheis, put together these animated gifs showing how various measures of inequality have changed state by state from 1977-2012:

Gini Coefficient

Red implies lower within-state inequality, green implies higher.          

Theil Coefficient

Red implies lower within-state inequality, green implies higher.           

Top 1% Share

Red implies lower within-state inequality, green implies higher.        

Data in the figures from Voorheis (2013), which corrects for CPS topcoding via Generalized Beta multiple imputation.
