    That's a really interesting map, unfortunately you could probably draw a lot of incorrect conclusion from it, but it's still very interesting. I noticed that some of the areas with the highest mobility are also areas with lots of oil and gas drilling, Eastern Utah, North Dakota, I wonder if there is any relationship there.

    Interesting since it's typically people from the south who don't think income mobility is an issue, plus Mississippi and those near it are the poorest states in the nation so one would think it'd be easier to change class there.
