Wealth Class

This is how I fair in the Class categories for Occupation, Education, Income, and Wealth. Let me know yours. It looks a lot higher than I expected. I'm surprised my bachelor's degree puts me in the 91st percentile even though I feel almost everyone has one these days. Probably there's a huge portion of a different gerenation that didn't have college degrees. EDIT: The Occupation scale appears to be inaccurate. It puts Statisticians at 58th percentile and computer programmers at 65% percentile, but most of those positions make at least 50% more than I do. I picked Computer Support Specialists, but I must be one of the least paid ones.

I think this is because we do see so many people going to college. Student loans pretty much make it possible for anyone to go to college, regardless of ability or income.

However, this doesn't mean that they actually graduate from college. There are a variety of reasons for this.

As an educator, it's a little depressing but such is reality..
