The Wealthiest and Poorest County in Every U.S. State

The average U.S. state is made up of 62 counties.

With so many counties spread throughout each state in the nation, it’s not surprising that we can find counties that exemplify almost any part of the American experience.

In this case, we’re comparing county-level data to look at the differences in economic opportunity within each state. More specifically, we are looking at the range of median household income, which is one proxy for the difference in economic status between counties.
Disparity by State

Today’s infographic comes to us from TitleMax, and it looks at the wealthiest and poorest counties in each individual U.S. state based on the measure of median household income.

Mass Incarceration: The Whole Pie 2016 | Prison Policy Initiative
There is a lot of interesting and valuable research out there, but varying definitions make it hard — for both people new to criminal justice and for experienced policy wonks — to get the big picture.

This report offers some much needed clarity by piecing together this country’s disparate systems of confinement. The American criminal justice system holds more than 2.3 million people in 1,719 state prisons, 102 federal prisons, 942 juvenile correctional facilities, 3,283 local jails, and 79 Indian Country jails as well as in military prisons, immigration detention facilities, civil commitment centers, and prisons in the U.S. territories. And we go deeper to provide further detail on why convicted and not convicted people are locked up in local jails.

How I hate misleading graphs
August 5, 2009 by Stephen Malczin

Note to redditors who have linked to my article and are whining about how it supports the tea partiers, it does NOT. Let me be clear. Thesis: The graphs from the Tax Foundation are misleading. The trend in tax burden is perfectly reasonable given the data and not unfair. My own personal opinion: Income has become more stratified and the top 1% are making a ridiculous portion of the total income.

Lord. Read, folks! This article explicitly states how the graphs from the Tax Foundation on personal income tax are misleading. It specifically states that it is perfectly reasonable for the top 1% to be paying more taxes than the bottom 95% because of the increase in the percent of total national income they account for.
