Abstract:

The Luxembourg Income Study (LIS) offers micro-data on public and private sources of income for over 25 countries for as many as five points in time, covering the period between the early 1980s and early 2000s. The aim of this paper is to offer an overview of the many opportunities the LIS data set provides to measure state redistribution in the developed countries. Two specific tasks will be undertaken. First, and most important, the paper will offer a detailed discussion of a number of aspects of state redistribution, presenting a good deal of newly computed data that are, to our knowledge, unavailable elsewhere. LIS data are detailed enough to allow us not only to measure overall redistribution, but also to explore whether redistribution has been achieved primarily through taxes or transfers; to determine whether it is associated with the size or the internal target efficiency of social benefits; to compare the redistributive effect of the most important individual transfers; to focus separately on redistribution across all income groups, lower, middle and upper income groups, and those in poverty; and to examine separately households headed by persons of working age. Second, the paper will attempt to place state redistribution in a broader context by discussing several aspects of redistribution that are not directly measured in LIS surveys. These include the redistributive effect of in-kind benefits, particularly for education, which we will explore using an imputation method; and second-order effects, whereby direct transfers affect “pre-government” private sector income, in turn affecting measures of direct state transfers.
