Version 8.3 of the SWIID is now available! This new release:
adds to its source data 1872 new Ginis since version 8.2, including newly available LIS data on Chile, Denmark, Germany, Mexico, Peru, Slovenia, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Italy, and—for the first time—Palestine; and
includes estimates of market and disposable income inequality for 188 more country-years than version 8.2.
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.
