Income Distribution [Discontinued]

Hide / Show Abstract

This dataset has been discontinued and is now replaced by the following dataset: http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/data-00654-en

Comparable data on the distribution of household income provide both a point of reference for judging the performance of any country and an opportunity to assess the role of common drivers as well as drivers that are country-specific. They also allow governments to draw on the experience of different countries in order to learn "what works best" in narrowing income disparities and poverty. But achieving comparability in this field is also difficult, as national practices differ widely in terms of concepts, measures, and statistical sources.

This dataset has been discontinued and is now replaced by the following dataset: http://dx.doi.org/10.1787/data-00654-en

This dataset is a subset of the Income Distribution Database.It includes comparable statistics on the distribution of household income with a focus on poverty providing both a point of reference for judging the performance of any country and an opportunity to assess the role of common drivers as well as drivers that are country-specific. They also allow governments to draw on the experience of different countries in order to learn "what works best" in narrowing income disparities and poverty. The data is presented with peverty measures as core variables ( poverty rate after taxes and transfers, mean poverty gap )that can be further divided by period, definition and poverty threshold. Data are presented from the mid-70’s onwards.
