THE MEASUREMENT OF INEQUALITY

We begin our study of the distribution of income by addressing four questions of measurement.

• How much inequality is there in our society.

• How many people live in poverty.

• What problems arise in measuring the amount of inequality?

• How often do people move among income classes?

These measurement questions are the natural starting point from which to discuss public policies aimed at changing the distribution of income.
