Lifetime Earnings and Inequality

Contents:

Author Info

  • Creedy, John

Abstract

It is argued that for many purposes the measurement of inequality should be based on income measured over a longer period than a single year. However, samples of individual earnings over a long period are extremely rare and there are no data on complete lifetime earnings. This survey examines the wide variety of attempts that have been made to estimate inequality using a longer accounting period. Emphasis is placed on the problems of extending the accounting period, rather than the properties of particular statistical measures of inequality.
