Wealth According to the Probate Returns

Wealth According to the Probate Returns.

The probate returns for New Zealand have not hitherto been published, and I am indebted to Mr Hickson and his assistants for having made me the very laborious calculation of which they are the result. It will be observed that they are averaged for a period of five years, the reason being that the falling in of a very large estate may cause the average of any one year to be misleading. The Victorian calculation is copied from Mr Hayter's "Year Book." Those for New South Wales and the United Kingdom I worked out from returns contained respectively in Mr Coghlan's official work "The Wealth and Progress of New South Wales," and in the "Statistical Abstract of the United Kingdom."
