Data and Documentation

Data Warehouse and metadata

The data warehouse includes four databases: 1) Wealth Topography; 2) Wealth Inequality Trends; 3) Estate, Inheritance, and Gift Taxes: and 4) Inheritance Trends

The databases can be accessed either through each section-specific file or by downloading the entire warehouse file.

Users can always access two different versions of each data file, one containing only minimal descriptive information, and one containing full descriptive metadata (detailed information on sources of data, longer descriptions of variables and concepts used, procedures of aggregation and estimation, bibliography links, and complementary information).

Download Data files

The first version of the Data Warehouse (v1.0) and each section-specific database can be accessed through our dedicated GitHub webpage.

Warehouse Documentation

The documentation provides detailed information about the construction of the warehouse, as well as about the codebook and data-assembling process.
