HLEG Workshop on Inequality of Opportunity


On 14 Janaury 2015, the High-Level Expert Group on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress (HLEG), hosted by the OECD, will hold a thematic workshop on "Inequality of Opportunity" in Paris, France, in collaboration with the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

The goal of the workshop is to identify the types of metrics that best describe inequality of opportunity, the changes in statistical practices that would be required to facilitate the production of these metrics in the future, and their policy and analytic uses. While several workshops and conferences have been held recently on this subject (e.g. the workshop organised on 16 May 2014 by the US Administration for Children and Families in Washington, D.C.; and the conference on Economic Opportunity and Inequality organised on 17 October 2014 by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston), the distinctive feature of the HLEG workshop will be the focus on measurement, and the effort to provide a comparative perspective to the issues at hand.
