The light blue block on the right side represents the share of income for the lower 90% of the population, or about 51.8% of all income. The other blocks on the left represent the various incomes of the other 10% of the population, or about 48.2% of all income. The top 1% are represented by the red, purple, orange, and yellow blocks who have a 20.9% share of all income.
The graph full size:
Where's the middle class? Reality shows that we really have a large lower class, a small middle class, and a tiny upper class. The classic bell curve with most of the people's income somewhere in the middle is a fallacy.
