Inequality in the Distribution of Personal Income in the World: How It Is Changing and Why
The variance in the logarithms of per capita GDP in purchasing-power prices increased in the world from 1960 to 1968 and decreased since the mid 1970s.

Approximately two-thirds of this measure of worls inequality is intercountry, three-tenths interhousehold within country inequality, and one-twentieth between gender differences in education.
