Confidentiality - data treatment

Top- and bottom coding has been implemented. Wealth above the threshold of 1.000 the interquartile distance has been capped at that level. 2014: DKK 1.275 mio. 2015: DKK 1,338 mio. 2016: DKK 1,401 mio. 2017: DKK 1,472 mio. 2018: DKK 1,500 mio. 2019: DKK 1,612 mio. 2020: DKK 1,738 mio. 2021: DKK 1,909 mio. 2022: DKK 1,819 mio. For persons with wealth exceeding the cap the wealth components have been lowered proportionally, so that the net wealth overall remains at the cap. The isolated effect is that estimates for average wealth and inequality are lower that they would otherwise be. For instance the share of wealth in the top 1 pct. is reduced from 29.6 pct to 27,9 pct. as a result of the discretionary measures in 2021.

Christiansø is counted together with Bornholm.
