Specifically, the economists were asked to comment either briefly or in some detail on the points: (1) specific uses your organization makes of existing wealth estimates; (2) potential uses you would have if the wealth estimates were improved elaborated; (3) other uses you consider to be of importance; and(4) the directions in which you think the improvements and elaborations should go—as toward greater accuracy of aggregates; more detail on type of asset, industry, or region, etc. The replies are reproduced in this appendix as a supplement
