Wage inequality and structural change
In this project, we created a large set of wage inequality indicators. We used a large collection of individual level data. We acquired over 1600 individual level data for 44 countries over three decades. We provide several measures of wage inequality (Gini Index, mean log deviation, log of 90/10 percentiles, log of 90/50 percentiles, log of 50/10 percentiles, log of 75/25 percentiles) for each country and year. To extract part of the inequality that can be attributed to structural change, we also provide measures for counterfactual distributions of characteristics of workers. All of the databases and methods are described in detail in the paper "Wage Inequality and Structural Change".
