Data for GOOD

Knowledge is the first step on the way to progress.

Launch Infographic

What does it take to win at the game of life known as the American Dream? Across the decades, Americans have faced new challenges, steeper costs of living, more diversity when it comes to family structure and race—and have evolved to meet these changing circumstances with new innovations.

In this infographic powered by data from Progressive, we’ll take a look at how nine key life milestones have changed for Americans over the last 100 years.

Throughout 2015, we're partnering with Progressive to harness the power of information. Each week, we'll put data under the microscope, asking how statistics and research can empower us to challenge our understanding of ourselves and the ways we navigate our world. Knowledge is the first step on the way to progress: Let's take this information and drive change in the world together. This is Data for GOOD.
