Found this in today's Wall Street Journal in an article on what luxury goods makers are doing to target the "newly rich."

"The object of their obsession is younger than ever before. In 1999, a third of all American households with assets totaling $1 million or more were headed by someone between the ages of 18 and 39, according to the Affluent Survey conducted by Mendelsohn Media Research of New York. That percentage is up from 1990, when 28% of "millionaire households" fell into the 18-to-39 age bracket."

You got to wonder about that statistic that "1/3 of millionaire households are headed by an 18 to 39-year-old". See link:
