    Graphic: How Class Works - New York Times

    This could be an eye opener for a lot of people, it's actually pretty cool to play with.

    Interesting though, under the "how class breaks down" tab ~ the only two factors are listed as income and education, I think there's a lot more to "class" than that, but I suppose it's strictly measuring social standing.

    The education, income are pretty straightforward, but on the wealth on the other hand at the same time isn't partially in sync with reality, imo. At the very least, some of the categories are too broad.
