I think the calculator is buggy.
I think this type of calculator never works well for those in the upper middle, lower upper class, since all your assets, income etc. are being compared to the rich outliers. Age is also a huge consideration since the majority of wealth is earned in the last few working years. There are simply too many biases rolled in.

How could you expect someone with an average upper class Alberta income ($233.8k) in their mid-thirties to have a similar net worth as a pair of 60 oil-exec's ? :confused:

The tables of mean and median income, net worth included in this post are probably much more informative. They must have the data, but I really wish Stats Can would present data as more informative box plots.
