A Cross-country Comparison of Household Income, Consumption and Wealth between Micro Sources and National Accounts Aggregates
Maryse Fesseau, Florence Wolff, Maria Liviana Mattonetti
Much valuable information exists already on household economic resources (i.e. income, consumption and wealth). Indeed, the national accounts provide aggregate measures and micro sources (surveys, administrative records, and censuses) can be used to derive measures of the distribution across...

A Multiplicative Masking Method for Preserving the Skewness of the Original Micro-records
Nicolas Ruiz
Masking methods for the safe dissemination of microdata consist of distorting the original data while preserving a pre-defined set of statistical properties in the microdata. For continuous variables, available methodologies rely essentially on matrix masking and in particular on adding noise...

Can Increasing Inequality Be a Steady State?
Lars Osberg
Historically, discussions of income inequality have emphasised cross-sectional comparisons of levels of inequality of income. These comparisons have been used to argue that countries with more inequality are less healthy, less democratic, more crime-infested, less happy, less mobile and less...

Cast a Ballot or Protest in the Street - Did our Grandparents Do More of Both?
Romina Boarini, Marcos Díaz

Nadim Ahmad, François Lequiller, Pascal Marianna, Dirk Pilat, Paul Schreyer, Anita Wölfl

Since income is the return on wealth, the total wealth of any given country should be on the order of 20 times its GDP. Instead the average observed ratio from the balance sheet accounts of the System of National Accounts (SNA) is a factor of 2.6 to 6.6, depending on whether natural resource...
