Project Description

To assess whether governments and international agencies are making progress in their efforts to reduce inequality and poverty, accurate measure of global and regional income distributions is critical. In this project existing methods for estimating income distributions at the country, regional and global levels will be extended, and applied to the most recent data available. Income distributions will be estimated for 3 years and approximately 100 countries and combined into regional and global distributions that will then be used to analyze changes in global and regional inequality and poverty, and to make inter-country comparisons.
