Income Inequality in New Zealand, 1935â€“2014
Norman Gemmell () and
Australian Economic Review, 2018, vol. 51, issue 1, 21-40
Trends in income inequality are increasingly being discussed by economists and policy makers. In New Zealand, income inequality indices increased during the late 1980s and early 1990s, with limited change thereafter. But little is known about the levels and changes of such indices over prior decades. Based on previously unexplored data from Statistics New Zealand Official Yearbooks and Inland Revenue, this article reports estimates for the Gini index of income inequality for New Zealand from the midâ€ 1930s to the present. Comparisons with estimates for Australia for 1942â€“2001 reveal some remarkable commonalities.
