Sources of Income for Top 0.01 Percent (excluding capital gains)

In my earlier post I plotted the percentage of income that comes from capital gains for the Top 0.01 percent. (In 2005 it was 18% if you exclude capital gains when determining the Top 0.01 percent and 51% if you include capital gains when determining the Top 0.01 percent). In the graphs below, I have plotted the other income sources for Top 0.01% (excluding capital gains when you rank the families). The question I am trying to answer: since most of the income was not from capital gains in the original graph, what are the sources of the unaccounted for income?

Income Sources of top 0.01 percent

The income data can be found on Emmanuel Saez's web site.
