Neighborhood wealth distributions
This paper uses data from the neighborhood clusters sample of the 1989 American Housing Survey and the Panel Study of Income Dynamics and its 1989 wealth supplement to study the distribution of wealth within US residential neighborhoods. It uses the Bourguignon decomposable inequality index and finds that wealth is more unequally distributed than income, and income more than housing wealth, at all levels of aggregation, that is, neighborhoods, metropolitan areas, regions and the entire US.
