Economic Inequality in Portugal
This article uses data from the 1994-2001 waves of the European Community Household Panel to study economic inequality in Portugal. It reports data on the distributions of income, labour earnings, and capital income, and on related features of inequality, such as age, employment status, educational attainment, marital status, and economic mobility. A Generalized Ordered Probit model is used to investigate how and to what extent the different household characteristics contribute to economic status and economic mobility. The article shows that education is by and large the dimension most closely related to inequality.
