Gini Coefficients of Income Inequality

Santa Clara & San Mateo Counties, Bay Area, California, and the United States

Data are from the U.S. Census Bureau, American Community Survey Public Use Microdata. Silicon Valley data include Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. The Gini coefficient indicates the degree to which incomes are concentrated. A Gini of zero corresponds to no concentration, or incomes that are the same across all households. A Gini of 100 indicates that all income is concentrated in a single household. Figures between 0 and 100 indicate proximity to either endpoint.
