This article provides new evidence on household asset location decisions using the latest Survey of Consumer Finances (SCF). The authors find that the difference between the equity share in tax-deferred accounts (TDAs) and the equity share in taxable accounts (TAs), a measure of asset location in the article, declined significantly after 2001. They also discuss potential explanations of the change in asset location.
