I too found it interesting. But there are a number of missing parts to this article...and pointing out those missing parts would be helpful.

For example, do the numbers shown reflect the total of ALL Vanguard retirement accounts, including all form of retirement plans and IRAs or is this just designated retirement plans? Many individuals may be saving for retirement in taxable accounts, either because they maxed out their retirement plan at work, they are counting on their inheritance that is currently sitting in a taxable account or they hold only one kind of account at Vanguard, such as their SIMPLE IRA through their employer, but hold significant retirement savings elsewhere.

Just some thoughts....but an interesting find on your part. Thanks for sharing.
