“It turns out a major predictor of wealth is one’s earning a high income in his or her 20s. Those below the age of 34 in households earning between $100,000 and $199,999, identified as the “Emerging” tier, have a far greater chance of eventually crossing the golden threshold of $200,000 than those who achieve household income of $100,000 later in life, identified above as “Aspiring.””
