  4. It should be noted that the investigation of the typical time sequence for selling gold and other savings, or taking up debt and credits have been made from 6 pair vise relations between the four measures.

    Variations in disposition rights between the elements of net household wealth (for example women's role in disposition of jewelry) have not been taken into account.
