JID special issue from the 2017 LIS/LWS user conference

the Special Issue Comparative wealth and income research edited by Daniele Checchi and Janet Gornick is now available online (Vol 26, No 2 (2018)). The articles included in this special issue of the Journal of Income Distribution are a selection of papers originally presented at the first LIS-LWS Users Conference, hosted by LIS, the cross-national data center in Luxembourg. Taken as a whole, these articles constitute an interesting overview of the ways in which the research community uses the LIS-LWS Databases, which provide researchers access to microdata on income and wealth, respectively.

There will be a special issue from the 2018 LIS User conference dedicated to the legacy of Tony Atkinson, edited by Andrea Brandolini, Daniele Checchi and Timothy Smeeding. The special issue will include papers that have applied or further elaborated one of Tony Atkinson’s many ideas about inequality analysis on topics such as: welfare state analysis, inequality and poverty, the redistributive effect of taxation and other related subjects. A selection of the papers will be published in Spring 2019.
