Abstract

This paper examines the changes in state-level income inequality from 1981 to 1987. Family income inequality is measured with Gini coefficients calculated for each state. Changes in these measures during this period appear to reflect, in part, the uneven economic restructuring across the states and regions during the 1980s.
