    Abstract

    Estimates using survey data are determined by two factors: the data collected and the survey weights. This paper discusses the design and calculation of a set of consistent weights for the Surveys of Consumer Finances. Taking both these weights and the multiply imputed survey data, the authors look at estimates of changes in the distribution of wealth over the first half of the 1990s.
