ProPublica has a good rundown on a much-discussed study by the Congressional Budget Office showing that over the past three decades the income of the highest-paid Americans has soared while the income of others has grown much more modestly.

The app uses the Gini index, a statistical measure that ranges from zero (a community in which every citizen has precisely the same income) to one (the opposite extreme, in which one person receives literally all of the income).
