This publication analyses the available sources of income distribution statistics in 60 countries. The various approaches taken by the countries provide an indication of the problems involved in establishing meaningful international comparisons of income distribution statistics. Each chapter on a country contains five sections: introduction, standards adopted, data collection, presentation of results, and reliability. In some chapters, where there was more than one source in the country, a section on other sources is included.------ Out of print.
