Income Effects of Growing Up in Different Places (Amazing Map!)

This great map is a quick national view of how growing up in different counties affects one's household income at age 26 (compared to growing up in an "average county").  The New York Times is offering a fascinating interactive look, with options for seeing impacts on all children, male versus female children, and children from families with different income levels. 

One small warning: the article itself is interactive.  For about one second, the text was about Manhattan, and then it changed to being about the Danville area.  It was reading me while I was reading it! 

That said, it's engaging enough to share quickly, before mining it for deeper Kentucky insights.
