Abstract [en]

The objective of this paper is to describe two new administrative

Swedish databases, referred to as the Belinda databases. Together, these

databases contain the most detailed individual-level data on estates, bequests,

and inheritances currently available. We present descriptive statistics

for the key variables in the databases to give a picture of the size of

estates, the content of the bequests, and who the recipients of the inheritances

are. The statistics may serve as a point of reference for other

scholars, but also as an illustration of the various research possibilities that

the databases provide and how the data can be matched with other administrative

registers. We also, briefly, describe the institutional context

regarding intergenerational transfers in Sweden, including the inheritance

law and the inheritance tax.
