dc.description.abstractIn the October 1975 edition of this Review, Harrison and Nolan examine the 'residual wealth' assumption which Lyons (1972 and 1975) made when using the mortality multiplier method to estimate the distribution of personal wealth in Ireland. The assumption was that all of the unexamined estates of adults who died in 1966 had a net value of zero. Scrutiny of such assumptions is valuable because, as Atkinson (1974) has shown, wealth distribution estimates seem to be highly sensitive to the values assumed for residual wealth.
