How The Poor And The Rich Spend Their Money – [GRAPHIC]

As part of NPR’s Graphing America series, Planet Money takes a look at how the poor, middle class and rich spend their money. Not surprisingly, the poor spend more of their money on essentials like groceries and utilities while the rich spend more on education and saving for retirement.

The figures highlighted in the graph above come from the Consumer Expenditure Survey, which includes lots of useful data on spending patterns in the U.S.
