Poverty and Inequality in an International Context

Back to search results

The past three decades have seen major changes in labour markets, savings patterns and social protection systems. Wage inequality and intergenerational wealth inequality have increased as both labour and capital markets have experienced major shocks. What impact have these changes had on poverty and income inequality? How have social protection systems responded to these changes in Australia and other countries? What are the implications for newly industrialising countries? The project will draw upon Australian income and wealth survey data as well the Luxembourg Income Study - a cross-national database of household income and wealth surveys.
