The IRS information regarding wealth and millionaires can be found at the following URL

http://www.irs.gov/tax_stats/soi/est_pw.html

The 1995 studies are toward the bottom of the page. Each contains several spreadsheets and a ~27 page summary of the findings (in .pdf).

I have to reacquaint myself with the material. One thing I do remember however is that the wealthier one became, the more "closely held stock" became a substantial portion of his/her wealth. In fact, it may have the the largest contributor percentage wise for the wealthiest group (> $10,000,000).

The personal residence and other real estate categories were the largest for the under $1,000,000 group.
