Abstract: The 1983 Survey of Consumer Finances collected data on the assets and liabilities of a nationally representative sample of U.S. households. The survey was designed to provide detailed information on the characteristics of different types of assets or liabilities and on the institutional sources of these balance sheet items. Data on reasons for various financial choices and attitudes toward financial risk, liquidity, and credit use were also collated to help explain household behavior. In addition, the 1983 survey provides information that permits estimation of pension and Social Security wealth.
