Workshop on “Harmonization of Household Surveys, Fiscal Data and National Accounts” at the Paris School of Economics

On 17-18 May 2018, the Paris School of Economics hosted a workshop titled: “Workshop on Harmonization of Household Surveys, Fiscal Data and National Accounts: Comparing Approaches and Establishing Standards”. The workshop was co-organized by representatives from the Commitment to Equity (CEQ) Institute at Tulane University, the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality at the CUNY Graduate Center, and the Paris School of Economics. The attendees included over 60 scholars and analysts, from many institutions, working in the field of income/wealth distribution measurement. Daniele Checchi and Teresa Munzi from LIS attended, as did Branko Milanovic, Janet Gornick, Salvatore Morelli, and Nishant Yonzan from the Stone Center.

The workshop panels explored an array of methods, with empirical examples, aimed at adjusting the top of income and wealth distributions. Presentations were organized into six panels: “Methods for combining surveys, tax, and national accounts data & DINA”; “Methods for combining surveys and administrative data”; “Methods for combining surveys and administrative data: developing economies”; “Global-level adjustments: approaches so far”; and “Wealth inequality”. The conference program, with links to the presentations, is available online.
