The LIS Web Tabulator (Web Tab) is a secure Java application that allows users to design and generate cross-national descriptive tables based on the underlying LIS datasets without the need for programming.
Although the Web Tab is available to the general public, you must register to use it.
NOTE: LISSY registered users can access the Web Tab with their current user ID and password.
Available Datasets and Variables
LIS Web Tabulator includes datasets starting from LIS Wave V. At this point, the Web Tab includes household-level data only. The Web Tab contains standardised indicators, including multiple indicators of real household income (e.g., poverty and inequality measures), as well as demographic and labour market variables.
Purchasing Power Parities (PPPs)
All income variables have been converted from nominal local currency units to 2005 international dollars. Expressing income amounts in PPP terms is common in comparing incomes across countries and results in incomes that hold roughly equal purchasing power measured in international prices. The conversion was done by applying first a national price deflator to the nominal amounts to express them in terms of year 2005 prices. Those amounts were then converted to international dollars using purchasing power parities. The national deflators and PPPs were taken from the OECD when available, and from the World Development Indicators when not.
