The changing American life path

A lot has changed in the last 100 years—up-and-down economies, social revolutions, steeper costs of living, living arrangements, and stagnant wages for many. But over the decades, Americans have consistently risen to the challenge with new innovations, adaptability, and a can-do spirit. So how has winning at the game of life changed for individuals over that time?

In this infographic from our friends at GOOD, we’ll look at how nine life milestones have changed over the last 100 years and see where we are today.

This piece was produced as part of Data for GOOD—an Apron Project collaboration. The Apron Project celebrates progress and the people who make it happen. This year, in partnership with the team at GOOD, we’re exploring how data and the power of information can be harnessed to make progress.
