The World Top Incomes Database
C’est Jean Abbiateci qui signale sur facebook l’énorme base de données de Piketty sur les inégalités et les revenus par tranche depuis plus d’un siècle
There has been a marked revival of interest in the study of the distribution of top incomes using tax data. Beginning with the research by Thomas Piketty (2001, 2003) of the long-run distribution of top incomes in France, a succession of studies has constructed top income share time series over the long-run for more than twenty countries to date. These projects have generated a large volume of data, which are intended as a research resource for further analysis.
