And you're certainly free to believe they do. It's just a shame they didn't give the specifics instead of some vague allusions.

So far, though, you have failed to convince me one iota that the ICI data are flawed. Yes, households are different than taxpayers. But how many taxpayers are in or how many returns are submitted by each household? Averages would indicate slightly over one, not two or better. Thus, I still say the WSJ numbers are off until you or any one else can show me the cold, hard data that says otherwise. Right now ICI wins the race because no one has yet poduced any other data to support the claims in the WSJ.

In short, don't give me vague numbers, show me the study or studies that prove otherwise. We can all speculate, but speculations are not data.
