Guessing the S&P, U.S. Total, or World Total Stock?

@respondezvous2you

Hi Peter--the FAQ for the old version of cfire (http://gator3089.hostgator.com/~boknows/docs/faq.php) says it comes from Schiller's data, found at http://www.econ.yale.edu/~shiller/data.htm .

Although Schiller doesn't state which S&P index he's using on the link above, it appears to be the S&P 500 (or similar, you'll have to read in Schiller's work to find how he constructs his ersatz indexes before hand).

Hope this helps!
