New Research Data Product Tracks Income Mobility and Volatility

Press Release Number CB24-TPS.47

MAY 2, 2024 — The U.S. Census Bureau today released a new research data product, Mobility, Opportunity, and Volatility Statistics (MOVS), that shows detailed income and household statistics over time and includes demographic characteristics such as race and ethnicity. MOVS uses linked demographic and tax records on the population of U.S. working-age adults and tracks the progress of incomes, providing new insight into U.S. income growth, mobility and volatility.

Data are available from 2005 to 2019 for all states and socioeconomic groups. Visit the working paper and America Counts for more information on this research. Downloadable data and input files can be found at the MOVS public-use data page.
