h lders int fur gr -ups ( o u lea where b th have wealth- couples wh re 
ne • nly has wealth, single men and single r .men ), •‘■'he reducti n in 
sample 3ise Impairs the regularity f the data and I have therefore 
aggregated the four int two groups i married c uples and single 
pees ns. 
The calculated ftoet> coefficients for income of wealth woe 
wners are much higher than the actual ones ( ^able 1), 
These calculated c efficients c >rrespond more nearly to those of 
all income receivers including the wealthless ones -t e great 
majority. They correspond also more nearly to those of the 
conditional income distribtti >ns in all wealth classes except the 
last three. In fact, if we exclude the open wealth class 
fr g the income distribution ( which might perhaps be motivated 
by the argument that it is not contained in the calculation of AT 
either ) the we get Pareto coefficients entirely in line with 
the calculated ones ( Table 1). The motivation is not enti el^ 
convincing and the results are inconclusive. 
9inde the conditional income distributions in the 
wealth classes have been referred to several times. * give in the 
fallowing data for couples where b th husband and wife have wealth.
