Re: The New Improved 2005 ER Forum Current Net Worth Survey

It's interesting to me that the two sub-million slots in the poll have fewer votes than the slots to either side. I wonder if this is because when one gets close to a million perceived net worth, that you consciously try to save or invest more and spend less in order to push oneself into the millionaire category?

My guess is that we just don't have a large enough sampling to make any definite conclusions.

It would also be more illuminating to correlate the data to age or to retired vs working/working spouse status. Having a million bucks at age 50 and still working is different from having the same at age 50 and FIREd (no longer adding to the kitty except through unearned income). However, I found it fascinating as is--thanks for putting up and participating in the poll.

I disagree (for several reasons). Anyway, you CAN sell the pencil

dishes, dog crate, typewriter, chain saw, garbage pails,
etc etc etc ...............

I never said you couldn't. Plus, I have no idea what you're disagreeing with.

That's not true. I've looked at this graph long enough to conclude that I need another glass of wine.
