Version 6.1 of the SWIID is now available! Building on the end-to-end revision accomplished in Version 6.0 last July, this new release:
includes estimates of disposable income inequality for 83 new country-years;
expands estimates of market income inequality to all country-years (version 6.0 only estimated market income inequality for countries included in the LIS, about a third of the total country-years);
calculates estimates of absolute and relative redistribution for twenty additional countries, for a total of sixty-six—all of the countries for which there is source data available on both the distribution of market income and the distribution of disposable income or consumption.
