dc.description.abstractHow does income distribution change with economic growth? I distinguish between two aspects of income distribution - poverty and inequality - and discuss how to measure each. I then review what data we would want and what data we have on changes in poverty and inequality in different countries. I conclude with suggestions on how to overcome some of the current data deficiencies.
