Household Income Percentile Calculator (1979 to 2007)



This calculator takes any household income number and finds the percentile for that income level as reported by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) from their October 2011 report. The income amount you enter will be based on 2007 dollars and the calculated percentiles are computed linearly from the minimums of each bounding category (which is not very accurate in the bottom quintile). If you reach the Top 1% minimum for any year it simply states Top 1% since that is as high as it goes.
