Code requires only minimum 10 psf dead load for partition in SEISMIC LOADING. This is commonly applied in high rise design. However, if actual case exceeds 10 psf then the real dead load should be used. When I designed high rise, I used 10 psf but for wood framed apartment building, I usually used 12psf because of the full height party wall's spacing being more often than office building.
