Earnings by Age — Men

Soo… how’s the old earning power?

I perused a couple of websites to validate the average annual salaries by age, then applied a deflator to adjust the results by age.  This is because a person like me who should nominally earn $50K in 2018 would never ever had made $22K 35 years ago, like the chart implies.

So in the table below, the far left column indicates a person’s age in 2018.  The second column indicates that person’s earnings in 2018.  But to make the chart a bit more relevant, I crudely applied a deflator so that you can see how this ought to track in your own life.  Find your own age from the age groups across the top, in columns 3-9, and then the salaries below that will apply across your own age timeline, as taken from the age in the far left column.

I realize that this table is not comfortable in this format.  Too bad — that’s WordPress.

Enjoy!  Oh, and these are men’s salaries, which are different from women’s.
