Yet there appear to be flaws in the CEX data. Research has shown that this data set underestimates the increase in consumption inequality over the past 30 or so years. In fact, the rise in consumption inequality seems to mirror the rise of income inequality. Consumption inequality should in theory track income fairly closely, and while the evidence is not clear cut, recent research suggests that the two have risen in tandem over the past 30 years.

The level of inequality is much lower for consumption than income, and since , consumption inequality has risen considerably less than income inequality. Income inequality has generally increased episodically, with concentrated spurts in the late s, early s, and . So wealth inequality is typically higher than that measured in terms of consumption or income. The latest inequality report produced by Zurich-based Credit Suisse Group says that the richest 1% of.

Abstract Using the nationally representative Urban Household Income and Expenditure Survey (UHIES) conducted by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) of China, we document a steadily rising trend in income and consumption inequality during the period from to in urban China. Despite the rising urban inequality over time, the social welfare of urban residents unambiguously improved Cited by:

Vary over time by good and income. We!nd consumption inequality tracked income inequality much more closely than estimated by direct responses on expenditures.

This second exercise indicates that consumption inequality has closely tracked income inequality over the period Both of our measures show a significantly greater increase in consumption inequality than what is obtained from the CE's total household expenditure data directly.

Has Consumption Inequality Mirrored Income Inequality. We revisit to what extent the increase in income inequality since was mirrored by consumption inequality. We do so by constructing an alternative measure of consumption expenditure using a demand system to correct for systematic measurement error in the Consumer Expenditure Survey.

Our estimation exploits the relative expenditure of high- and low-income. The distinction between income and consumption could make a meaningful difference in thinking about inequality if the distribution of consumption at a given point in time is less wide than that of income, or if its evolution over time is smoother than that of income.

Therefore, income and consumption will differ due to the fact that all households should consume, but not all of them earn income, which in turn leads to higher income inequality compared to.Aguiar, M and M Bils (), “Has Consumption Inequality Mirrored Income Inequality”, American Economic Review (9): Armour, P, R Burkhauser, and J Larrimore (), “Levels and Trends in U.S.

Like the first paper, this effort also finds that inequality in income, wealth, and consumption has increased. But in this paper, the economists also look at inequality in what they call “two and three dimensions,” which analyzes the .
