2017/01 – King’s International Development Institute (IDI); IDI Working Paper 2017-01; Author(s): Sudhir Anand and Paul Segal - Details

This paper presents the first in-depth analysis of the changing composition of the global income rich and the rising representation of developing countries at the top of the global distribution. We construct global distributions of income between 1988 and 2012 based on both household surveys and the new top incomes data derived from tax records, which better capture the rich who are typically excluded from household surveys.
