Redistribution and the Income of the Median Voter
The income of the median voter has been measured by median income. This measure fails to consider the income distribution of both voters and number of adults per family. Proper measures of the income of the median voter change standard results. This income is no longer less than mean income; its ratio to mean income is only slightly related to the ratio of median to mean income. Copyright 1999 by Kluwer Academic Publishers
