Statics and Dynamics

Comparing Income Distributions brings together John Creedy’s recent original research and analyses of income distribution. The book is concerned with both static, or cross-sectional, comparisons, and dynamic aspects of income mobility. The author presents new methods of depicting and measuring income mobility and poverty persistence. Income mobility is explored in terms of individuals’ relative income changes and their positional changes within the distribution.
