Description of table F.229 - Proprietors' Equity in Noncorporate Business

Proprietors' equity in noncorporate business is households' ownership of nonfinancial noncorporate businesses and noncorporate security brokers and dealers. For nonfinancial noncorporate businesses, investment is calculated as the difference between sources and uses of funds; for the noncorporate security brokers and dealers, data on investment are obtained directly from regulatory reports. The level of proprietor's equity in noncorporate businesses is equal to the net worth of these companies. This instrument appears as a component of financial assets on the households and nonprofit organizations table (tables F.101, L.101, B.101, and R.101).
