The World Inequality Lab

The World Inequality Lab aims to promote research on global inequality dynamics. Its core missions are the extension of the World Inequality Database, the production of inequality reports and working papers addressing substantive and methodological issues, and their dissemination in academic and public debates.

The Lab regroups about twenty research fellows, research assistants and project officers based at the Paris School of Economics. It is managed by the same executive committee as WID.world composed of 5 co-directors and by a dozen regional and thematic coordinators. The World Inequality Lab works in close coordination with the large international network over one hundred researchers covering nearly seventy countries contributing to the database.

In addition to the year-round updates to the database and working papers, the World Inequality Lab publishes the World Inequality Report. The objective is to highlight new findings and research analysis emanating from the database, and to draw implications for the global inequality debate. The World Inequality Report aims to become the reference global report on inequality and to attract extensive coverage in the international media. The first edition - the World Inequality Report 2018 - was released in december 2017.
