How the Composition of Wealth Differs

This chart breaks down the differences in the composition of wealth between middle income, upper income, and ultra wealthy of American households to help us better understand the building blocks that make up net worth.

Those in the upper income bracket (earning between USD 471k and USD 10.2m) have a higher mix of financial assets like stocks and mutual funds, as well as business equity and real estate. Almost half of households in this group own real estate in addition to their principal residence.
