Version 7.1 of the SWIID is now available! In addition to important behind-the-scenes improvements to the estimation routine, this new release:
adds to its source data 627 new Ginis since version 6.2, including newly available LIS data on Chile, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and Israel; and
includes estimates of market and disposable income inequality for 80 more country-years than version 6.2.
For more details, you can check out the all the R and Stan code used to generate the estimates in the SWIID GitHub repository. As always, I encourage users of the SWIID to email me with their comments, questions, and suggestions.
