WID.world assists scholars, journalists, and other interested users in the production of their own inequality datasets

Our programs allow for the estimation of income and wealth distributions based on raw tabulated data, such as those provided by statisical agencies and tax administrations. They can also be used to combine distributions from different countries, and to produce representative synthetic files. The estimation routines rely on generalized, non-parametric Pareto interpolation techniques. They can be run directly from our website with no prior technical knowledge. All interested users can also download and install our open-access computer codes on their own computers (R-package format). Just click on the image below. AVAILABLE SOON.
