The Degree and Pattern of Income Immobility in Sweden

  • Gustafsson, Bjorn
Registered author(s):

    This paper studies immobility in the distribution of income using Swedish data. Tax data shows immobility in personal income to be a decreasing function of the length of the period over which it is studied and an increasing function of initial age. The results show immobility to be larger among males than among females. Based on a household income survey, it is found that, when the time period expands from one to two years, the Gini coefficient of equivalent income per person decreases by five percent. A sample of males indicates that income immobility between generations in Sweden is low. Copyright 1994 by The International Association for Research in Income and Wealth.
