Version 8.0 of the SWIID is now available! In addition to important behind-the-scenes improvements to the estimation routine, this new release:
includes estimates of market and disposable income inequality for 129 more country-years than version 7.1.
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.
