These results are based off of 6015 individual samples where the head of household was age 18 to 100 and are weighted to represent 122530080 American households. The SCF is known to be slightly biased towards higher incomes values, which the Federal Reserve attempts to correct for by adjusting the weighting of each individual response. Keep this in mind if the number of responses your output is based off of is low, or if you are looking at the tail ends of the data--like the top 1% or bottom 1%.

The numbers are based off of the results of the 2013 Survey of Consumer Finances by the Federal Reserve. I used R to separate one of the five imputations with the sample replicatant weights from the Federal Reserve. If you want to do your own analysis check out the raw data, and also check out this guide on how to import the data into R http://www.r-bloggers.com/analyze-the-survey-of-consumer-finances-scf-with-r/. The number of samples per age vary quite a bit, so you might get unusual results for certain ages.

  1. If you have shelter, food and people to love and love you, you are rich. I’m now worth 7m at 52 and would feel a lot richer if I haven’t started worring about how I am going to keep that equity to pass on. Fact is, beyond basic needs, money isn’t going to bring you much more happiness in life…Just hopefully a bit less stress.

    1. I would argue that time with loved ones, doing the things you love, is the most valuable thing in the world (assuming basic food/shelter), and MONEY IS TIME. I’m still having to work as I don’t yet have enough invested assets to live off of the passive income, and I wish I had that time to spend with my children, especially while they’re still small. However, in order to really have that time, I need more money.
