Abstract: It has been recently documented that the estimates of income processes using the moments for log-incomes in levels and differences deviate substantially. This has important quantitative implications for calibrated macro models. We propose a specification of the income process consistent with the moments in levels and growth rates, and estimate it using administrative data on labor incomes of Danish males for the period 1981--2006.
