Principal Investigator(s): Weicher, John C., Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis
This research describes the demographic attributes of both rich and poor households, and also the composition of their holdings. The data are drawn from surveys of household wealth conducted for the Federal Reserve Board in 1983, 1989, and 1992, years that approximate the turning points of the 1982-1991 business cycle.
These data are flagged as replication datasets and are distributed exactly as they arrived from the data depositor. ICPSR has not checked or processed this material. Users should consult the investigator(s) if further information is desired.
These data are freely available.
