HOW DO YOU MEASURE UP TO OTHER HOUSEHOLDS?

Use the worksheet and table on this page to determine how well-off
you are compared with your fellow Americans. First, add up your net
assets in the spaces provided at left, then check your figures
against those posted by the typical U.S. household as well as those
for families with incomes in the top 20% of households -- above
$53,710 in 1989, the latest year for which income statistics are
available. Bear in mind that most families -- including yours -- are
wealthier than the table below indicates. The Census Bureau last
compiled data on household assets in 1988 and didn't include the
value of pensions, life insurance, furniture or jewelry.
