Since 2010, the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Global Wealth Report has been the leading reference on global household wealth. It contains the most comprehensive and up-to-date findings on global wealth across the entire wealth spectrum – from the very base of the ``wealth pyramid,'' capturing 3.5 billion adults with wealth below USD 10,000, to those at the apex of the wealth pyramid, who account for a small part of the world's population, but yet own a significant share of its wealth. Research for the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Global Wealth Databook has been undertaken on behalf of the Credit Suisse Research Institute by Professors Anthony Shorrocks and Jim Davies, recognized authorities on this topic and the architects and principal authors of "Personal Wealth from a Global Perspective," Oxford University Press, 2008. Dr. Rodrigo Lluberas has also been a very significant contributor to the project. The aim of the Credit Suisse Research Institute's Global Wealth project is to provide the best available estimates of the wealth holdings of households around the world for the period since the year 2000. While the Global Wealth Report highlights the main findings of our study, the Databook underlines the extent of our analysis. More importantly, it sets out in detail the data employed in our Global Wealth project, the methodology used to calculate estimates of wealth and how this may differ from other reports in this field. The Global Wealth Databook provides detailed information on the evolution of household wealth levels through the period 2000 to mid-2017 at both the regional and country levels. It presents our estimates on the distribution of wealth for over 200 countries. This year's Databook presents findings on the Millennials' wealth position and provides a comparison with earlier generations.
