Editor: this is an archived year. You can always find the newest income percentile by age calculator here.
This calculator crunches income quantile data for 2013 United States data for every single age (by year) from 18-80, to report incomes for every quantile from 1 to 99. If you enter an income and age in the form, it will report which quantile that income fell into and produce a graph of all incomes for that age.
When the graph is rendered, you can hover over the graph produced to see the exact cutoff point of every single income quantile for the age selected. Note that ‘income’ in this calculator is defined as ‘total income’ – so if you are comparing an income to the distribution, include all sources of income, including business, rental and investment income.
