Contents:

Author Info

  • Borland, Jeff

Abstract

This article reviews research on recent developments in earnings inequality in Australia. Four main issues are addressed. First, what are the main changes in earnings inequality that have occurred? Second, what do the authors know about the causes of changes in earnings inequality? Third, how have earnings differentials between workers in different skills groups changed and to what extent can those changes be explained by shifts in the relative demand for labor and relative supply of labor by level of skill? Fourth, how have changes in earnings inequality affected the distribution of income? Copyright 1999 by The Economic Society of Australia.
