The lack of a register-based sampling frame on high-worth individuals in many countries challenged previous attempts to sample high-worth individuals in voluntary scientific surveys. As a result, these individuals are typically under-represented in population surveys. In a novel research design, we draw on register data on the shareholding structures of companies as a sampling frame. Our design...
