Feel free to make simplifying assumptions or give partial answers (ex.: just links for some of the raw data).

Raw data needed for this calculation:

  • dividends given by each public companies (or at least the biggest ones)
  • historical value of each public companies (or at least the biggest ones)
  • historical value of a total market index fund (failing that, top 3000, or top 500 companies)

Can be restricted to the US.
