Income and Wealth Inequality and the Life Cycle: A Non-parametric Analysis for China
AbstractThis paper uses the techniques of non-parametric density and regression estimation to estimate the Chinese age/income and age/wealth distributions, using survey data relating to 1987. Although there is evidence of a clear life-cycle profile of income earning and wealth accumulation, the results suggest that only a small part of observed inequality can be explained by life-cycle factors. This finding contradicts the results of some other researchers. Copyright 1993 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
