LIS is pleased to announce that the results included in the Upshot section of the New York Times, Losing the Lead, (based on the LIS data) , are now included in the Khan Academy tutorial on Comparing income trends across countries as part of the Analysis of Income Inequality in the United States .

In 2014, at the request of the NYT, a team at LIS — Janet Gornick, Thierry Kruten, and Branko Milanovic — produced results, drawing on 164 LIS datasets from 23 countries, covering the period 1979 to 2010. The NYT-LIS study deals with the distribution and growth of household income across countries.
