Full text: Konvolut The Personal Distribution of Income 1

u 
holders into four groups ( couples where both hare wealth, couples when 
one only has wealth, single men and single women ). ^he reduction in 
sample size impairs the regularity of the data and I have therefore 
aggregated the four into two groups : married couples and single 
pwESons. 
The calculated Pareto coefficients for income of wealth 
owners are much higher than the actual ones ( ^able 1). 
These calculated coefficients correspond more nearly to those of 
all income receivers including the wealthless ones -the great 
majority. They correspond also more nearly to these of the 
conditional income distributions in all wealth classes except the 
last three. In fact, if we exclude the open wealth class 
frojj the income distribution ( which might perhaps be motivated 
by the argument that it is not contained in the calculation of 
either ) then we get ?areto coefficients entirely in line with 
the calculated 
ones 
( Table 1). 
The motivation is not entirely 
convincing and 
the 
results are inconclusive. 
Sinne the condi 
tional income distributions in the 
wealth classes 
have 
been referred 
to several times, - give in the 
following data 
for 
couples where 
both husband and wife have wealth.
