This chapter starts with Pareto’s law and the observation by other economists of the consistency of right-hand skewness in income distributions in both developing and developed countries. This leads to the modeling of income distribution with probability density functions. This is illustrated using the lognormal model.

Keywords:   density function, lognormal, Pareto, right-hand skewness
