Millionaire Households Rise to 8.6 Million

The data comes from 2012 Affluent Market Insights report of the Millionaire Corner, which defines net worth as “all assets not including primary residence.


The number of US households that can claim a net worth of $1 million or more has risen to 8.6 million in 2011, up from 6.7 million households in 2008, but lower than the peak of 9.2 million households in 2007. Nearly 1.1 million households had net worth of $5 million or more in 2011.
