Income Inequality and Education Premia
Marco Lilla ()
No 2007-11, IRISS Working Paper Series from IRISS at CEPS/INSTEAD
The paper attempts to measure income inequality and its changes over the period 1993-2000 for a set of 13 Countries in ECHP. Focusing on wages and incomes of workers in general, inequality is mainly analyzed with respect to educational levels as proxy of individual abilities. Estimation of education premia is performed by quantile regressions to stress differences in income distribution and questioning the true impact of education. The same estimates are used to decompose income inequality and show the rise in residual inequality.
