Special Issue "Econometrics and Income Inequality"
A special issue of Econometrics (ISSN 2225-1146).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2018)
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
This Special Issue is devoted to the econometric analysis of income inequality and income distributions. Given the recent surge of inequality research, this Special Issue seeks to combine both theoretical and applied contributions which advance the econometric analysis of income inequality and income distributions. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, statistical inference for inequality measurement, inequality measurement with complex survey data, parametric or non-parametric modelling of income distributions, statistical decomposition methodology, methods to investigate the determinants of distributional change, causal inference in inequality measurement, and applications of such methods to substantive research questions in different fields of economics.
