Inequality and the State

John Hills (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Presents evidence on income dynamics, using data from longitudinal surveys that track what has happened to the same people over time. Discusses what such information can tell us, and why it might be useful in formulating policy. Looks at the extent of income mobility in the UK during the 1990s and presents evidence on movements in and out of poverty. It looks across the distribution at the overall patterns that these data reveal for the trajectories that people’s incomes follow over time. Presents evidence on whether income mobility has been changing over time, and at how income and earnings mobility in the UK compare with other countries. The final section looks at longer-term links between generations.

Keywords:   earnings mobility, income dynamics, income mobility, income trajectories, longitudinal data, public policy, social mobility
