Recently, the Bureau of Labor Statistics attempted to answer this question. The result was compiled into an interactive graph by the NYTimes (WordPress doesn’t like to make it easy to embed Flash, so the link will take you straight to the graph).
Nothing entirely revolutionary, but some very interesting tidbits to be had. One thing I would like to be able to do with this graph — drill down by selecting multiple groups at once, for example, Men, Employed, 25-64, etc.
Anything in here surprising to anyone?
