Resource description

When families reform there are implications for the income distribution through a number of economic mechanisms: income sharing, changes in household need, reweighting the distribution. These changes are distinct from those that generate changes in factor income or transfers and may affect estimates of inequality or other indicators of the inter-personal income distribution. The potential importance of this is addressed using the Panel Study of Income Dynamics.
