After reading Charles Murray’s writings the last few days, my mind has been fixated on some of the changes in America’s class structure and our (mis)perception of those changes.

It made me wonder: Where exactly do I fall in the class stratosphere? Are my current perceptions accurate or are they way off?

While Americans like to think of themselves as middle class, it’s clear that the U.S. middle class is shrinking and has been for a long time.

As it happens, Pew Research Center offers a feature that allows readers to calculate where they fall on the class index. It only takes about two minutes.
