Abstract

Statistics of the income distribution function are published ordinarily only on earnings that are double or triple the average income. The critical average indicators are calculated only in this part of the distribution function. No data of the distribution function tail are present in the public press. This study is devoted to the economy of the United States. It shows that it is possible to satisfactorily find this tail on the basis of some random data, which in a market environment is not small. It considerably influences the crucial national indicators, including the budgetary deficit.
