NYT Database Updated, Complementary Database Added

We have updated the LIS / New York Times Income Distribution Database that we added to the LIS website in April 2014. This database, which contains detailed information on the distribution and growth of household income across countries, has been updated to include later microdata and to change from 2005 to 2011 PPPs.

We have also added a related database: the Incomes across the Distribution Database (2016), assembled by Stefan Thewissen, Brian Nolan and Max Roser (Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School, University of Oxford). This database also includes detailed information on income distributions. It contains information on total household income, both disposable and market income, and for entire populations as well as working-age populations.

We encourage you to explore both databases. See “Resources”, then “Other Databases”.
