Germany – New Country in LWS

Three new datasets from Germany, DE02 (Wave V), DE07 (Wave VII) and DE12 (Wave IX) have been added to the LWS Database.
The datasets are based on the wealth module included in the 2002 (19/S), 2007 (24/X) and 2012 (29/BC) waves of the German Socio-Economic Panel (GSOEP) carried out by German Institute for Economic Research (DIW), the same survey included in the LIS database.

Due to the different convention for naming datasets in LIS and LWS (whereby in LIS they follow the income reference year and in LWS the wealth reference year), those datasets correspond respectively to DE01, DE06 and DE11 in LIS

Italy – Older Data Points Added to the LWS Database

With a view to create longer time-series in the LWS Database, four old data points have been added to the Italian series: IT95 (Wave IV), IT00 (Wave V), IT04 (Wave VI) and IT08 (Wave VII).

The datasets are based on the corresponding waves of the Survey of Household Income and Wealth (SHIW), carried out by the Bank of Italy and already included in the LIS Database.

At the same time, the two more recent data points for Italy (IT10 and IT14) have been revised (see Italy – Revision of the Italian series in the LIS and LWS Databases).

Italy – Revision of the Italian Series in the LIS and LWS Databases

Spurred by the recent provision of a new consistent series of weights by the data provider, the Italian series from 1995 onwards (IT95, IT98, IT00, IT04, IT08, IT10 and IT14 for LIS, and IT10 and IT14 for LWS, all based on data from the Survey of Household Income and Wealth, SHIW carried out by the Bank of Italy) has been fully revised.

The revision of the earlier years included in the LIS Database (also based on the same original survey) is currently in process and will become available at the end of 2017.

On top of the incorporation of the newly provided weight, the revision also included a more consistent treatment over time of income taxes and social security contributions (all the incomes are now expressed net of taxes and contributions for the whole series, with the information on taxes and contributions being available separately among the non-consumption expenditures), as well as a more comprehensive provision of consumption data.
