  • This working paper presents evidence on changes in income distribution and poverty in thirteen OECD countries over the two decades up to the first half of the 1990s. While country experience has been variable, income and poverty rose in most countries. Both earnings and capital and self employment incomes contributed to these developments, partly offset by an increase in the importance of (progressive) taxes and transfers in total income. Increases in the share of no-worker households appears to have contributed to widening income distribution.

Dans un certain nombre de pays, l’allocation des transferts qui apparaît également distribuée entre les différent groupes de revenus, reflète le poids de transfert liés à l’âge. Par ailleurs, l’analyse des revenus relatifs et de la pauvreté par type de ménage suggère que la situation de la population à l’âge de la retraite tend à ...
