Interactive view of social mobility data for the United States. Two dozen different outcomes can be analysed, and the results segmented by gender, race and native/immigrant as well as geographically. The site has built-in tutorials, downloadable data and the ability to upload and overlay your own data. There is a permalink feature that allows you to bookmark and share the exact state of the map you are looking at. The "stories" function shows how the data have been used to reach specific research conclusions. In Advanced Mode, it is possible to filter for specific ranges of values.
