Income Inequality in Taiwan 197601995: Changing Family Composition, Aging, and Female Labour Force Participation
AbstractChange in income inequality in Taiwan from 1964 to 1995 is sensitive to how household incomes are adjusted for household composition. The reasonable practice of dividing household income by persons (or adults) in the household eliminates the widely noted increase in income inequality from 1980 to 1995, and calls into question whether income inequality decreased substantially from 1964 to 1975.
