Deaton Review Country Studies: A Trans-Atlantic Comparison of Inequalities in Incomes and Outcomes over Five Decades
Funders Involved: NSF; SSHRC; ESRC; AKA; ANR; BMBF/DLR-PT
The aim of this project is to examine a broad set of inequalities in employment, human capital, earnings and family income over the last five decades in a coherent framework across North America and Europe. It will provide a major source for comparative research on inequality trends and on how the pandemic has affected them. This project will highlight key differences and commonalities across 17 economies, deepen our understanding of the drivers of inequality and the impact of the pandemic and provide evidence needed to design appropriate policy responses to inequality in the post-pandemic world.
