Worthometer Updated to Include Interactive Calculator

As part of this website’s ongoing remodel, I’ve updated the popular Worthometer, which at this writing has garnered more than 35,000 views.

Users will now have the option to look up their household net worth ranking on either: (1) a two-column table; or (2) a brand new interactive calculator.

Here’s a screenshot:

This latest revision reflects my continuing forays into the magical world of Javascript and its rich landscape of arrays, functions, and methods. I hope to provide further updates in the coming weeks.

    It’s so funny because there was a time when I did have a net worth below what the Worthometer calculates. Now, with the proliferation of student loans, I do think it’s more common to see drastically lower net worths than what we may have seen historically.

      I haven’t looked at historical debt figures, but the latest data is downright depressing. According to the Worthometer, if a household is worth $0, it outranks the 19 percent or so of households that carry more debt than assets. In other words, about 1 in 5 households are in the red.
