  N. 19, November 2014 - Measuring inequality in income and consumption in a national accounts framework (PDF)

Measurement and analysis of income inequality has long been a topic of OECD work and seized renewed attention with the OECD’s Better Life Initiative. Measuring distributions across dimensions above and beyond income (health, education, etc.) are also at the heart of the OECD’s How’s Life? statistical agenda and form a prominent recommendation in the Stiglitz-Sen-Fitoussi report.
