Welcome to Economic Mobility of the States. This interactive tool captures the findings of the first analysis of Americans' economic mobility—their ability to move up or down the earnings ladder—on a state level. The study investigates Americans' mobility prospects during their prime working years—the 10-year span between ages 35-39 and 45-49. Our research focuses on individuals born between 1943 and 1958, with the most recent data coming from 2007 (see the Methodology to learn more). The interactive tool displays data for all 50 states and the District of Columbia, identifying where in the country Americans experience the best and worst mobility outcomes.

State of Florida is not looking to prosperous. I wish I could talk my wife into moving but her desire to live near family is more important than upward mobility.

Yes, and they are also the fattest, the sickest, the highest divorce rates, the greatest number of anti-women, anti-Gay, anti-voter rights legislation in the whole country, and the most miserable people, as well, according to all of the "Top Ten States For....." studies.
