Wealth thresholds: new data

Today we are releasing the second tranche of our wealth inequality data in conjunction with Statistics New Zealand. The data, available at this link, give details of wealth inequality thresholds – that is, the boundaries between wealth deciles (and in some cases percentiles) by both individual and household. Other tabs in the same spreadsheet provides details about the overall make up of wealth by asset class.
