69% of US wage earners comprise just 30% of cumulative net compensation

The bar-line chart below examines the cumulative number of US wage earners in different net compensation brackets and their contribution to the cumulative net compensation in 2017. In addition, a data row is used to detail the average net compensation and percent of wage earners for every bracket.

At the highest differential, 69% of wage earners comprise just 30% of cumulative net compensation. Note that at about 95% of wage earners, there is a discontinuity due a significant change in bracket definition.

Worldwide cereal production, utilization, and stocks

The combination bar-line chart below shows worldwide cereal production, utilization, and stocks on a yearly basis. In addition, a data row is used to compare the stock levels with the utilization. To clearly show the data, which is spread over a large range, two axes are used. The left axis begins at 1800 million tonnes to amplify the delta between production and utilization.

Production has consistently been higher than utilization which leads to an increase in the available stocks. Further stock levels as a fraction of utilization have also increased slightly.
