Probabilistic models of income distributions
The results showing relationships between distributions of individual incomes and incomes of two-earners households are presented. It is shown that individual incomes are very well described by Dagum's distributions. Income distributions in two quite different countries (USA and Poland) are studied for comparison. Obtained results show very striking and interesting differences.
