Share These Results :These results are based off of 1281 individual samples where the head of household was age 55 to 64 and are weighted to represent 22956245 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.
