Income Distribution Workshop


Co-sponsors: Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and University of Kentucky

Measures of income distributions and income inequality date back to at least the seminal work of Corrado Gini and have long been an important topic. Recent changes in the income distribution have become increasingly of interest in the popular press. Economists have long sought to examine both the causes and the consequences of changes in income distributions in the economy.

This workshop features research that attempts to understand various aspects of the income distribution.

 How does the income distribution vary over time, over individuals' lifetimes, and across generations?
 How do sources of risk, labor market conditions, geographic location, and educational attainment decisions impact the income distribution?
 How are individuals themselves impacted by the income distribution?

By bringing together leading researchers in the field to address these topics and more, the workshop aims to bring attention to the most important issues researchers are studying related to the income distribution, as well as to the challenges and opportunities they face in doing so.

There is no cost to attend this workshop.
