GOOD’s Year in Infographics

GOOD has compiled a collection of infographics from 2011, their “Best Of” infographics from the year.

This one shows the relationship between education and income across America, using a color coded Venn diagram where green represents the intersection between college education and income, and purple represents the intersection between high school education and income.  Darker pink and yellow represent greater concentrations of that level of high school and college education, respectively, in the population, and darker blue represents a higher income.  There are some interesting pockets of color – for example, dense dark blue and green in the mid-Atlantic East Coast, and a great deal of pink towards the center of the country.

Take a look at this and the rest of GOOD’s selection for your Friday visualization fix.
