In your "Who's data are you going to belive article"
I question the fact that the ICI & EBRI figures are
related to households & not individuals. I think of housholds as groups of people and therefor a $2,000
advg. contribution could be a $1,000 contribution
for two individuals in the same household and so would
skew those figures.

And it's great that you do question the data. That was what the whole article was about. At least in this article you had a source to go to, whereas in the WSJ piece you didn't. So now all you have to do is verify that your thoughts are correct and come up with a third set of data. :-)
