Inheritances in GB
This data-driven infographics example was redesigned from the Wikimedia Commons file: Inheritance by amount and distribution received and action taken with inheritances in Great Britain between 2008 and 2010.png.
"1.6 million adults (3.6%) had received an inheritance valued at £1,000 or more in the two years preceding being surveyed.
Although half of inheritors received less than £10,000, one in ten inherited £125,000 or more.
The combined total of all inheritances received over the two year period was estimated at £75.0 billion.
Nearly nine in every ten inheritances (88.4%) comprised, at least in some part, of money or savings. Property formed part of 19.5% of inheritances and personal possessions such as jewellery or collectibles were included in 12.4%.
The most common action for those receiving property inheritance was to sell it and for non-property inheritance to save it.
Rates of inheritance were higher for individuals living in households which already had the highest levels of wealth." [commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Inheritance_by_amount_and_distribution_received_and_action_taken_with_inheritances_in_Great_Britain_between_2008_and_2010.png]
