Sources of Income for Top 0.01 Percent

In my earlier post on Sources of Income of the super rich I plotted the percentage of income that comes from wages, entrepreneurial income, dividend income, interest income, and rental income for the Top 0.01 percent; but this did not include capital gains. In 2005 capital gains was 18% of the income of the super rich (if you exclude capital gains when determining the Top 0.01 percent). In the graphs below, I have plotted the all 6 income sources for Top 0.01% (this time including capital gains as one of the income sources).

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