MAPS IN THE NEWS:
This map, from The Washington Post's Wonkblog, is based on newly available data analyzed by a team of Harvard economists trying to assess upward and downward economic mobility. The counties in blue are regions in which, on average, children born between 1979 and 1983 to a family at the 50th income percentile are now doing better than the 50th income percentile themselves. Children born to families in the 50th income percentile in the counties in orange and red, by contrast, are now doing worse than the 50th income percentile. www.washingtonpost.com/resizer/ZbyFuCdCrkwTDSqrGb9kgjKUKAs=/1484x0/arc-anglerfish-washpost-prod-washpost.s3.amazonaws.com/public/DFWM2ZBVOVBIPKMPURMWP6EQZY.jpg
