Description

The Luxembourg Income Study (now known as LIS) provides public . Poverty, Inequality and Income Distribution in Comparative Perspective: The Luxembourg Income Study.

We present a comparison of coverage and values for five inequality data sets that have worldwide or major international coverage and independent measurements that are intended to present consistent coefficients that can be compared directly across countries and time.

Seven countries are at present in the data base. More are being added on a regular basis. This book describes the technical and methodological aspects of the LIS data base.

Thanks to the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) it is now possible to provide a more complete picture of cross-national differences at many points in the income distribution, instead of merely providing snapshot comparisons of the average or typical family in different countries. We measure disposable money income. For most families, the primary income source is market income, which includes earned income from wages, salaries, and self-employment and other cash income from private sources―from property, from pensions, from alimony or child support.

We use recent microdata from the Luxembourg Income Study to examine redistribution from transfers and income taxes, and the several underlying social programs that drive the changes in 31 countries. On average, we find that social transfers and income taxes reduce the Gini by 31%. In most countries, pensions are a dominant factor.

Evidence from the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) 183 The question of distribution ‘among whom’ is answered .

Evidence from the Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) 183 The question of distribution ‘among whom’ is answered ‘among individuals’. When assessing disposable income inequality, however, the unit of aggregation is the household; the incomes of all household members are aggregated and then divided by an equivalence scale to arrive at individual equivalent income.
