Overview

Abstract

Coordinated by Facundo Alvaredo, Anthony B. Atkinson, Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman, the World Wealth and Income Database aims to provide open access to data series on income and wealth worldwide. The goal is to be able to produce Distributional National Accounts: estimates of the distribution of wealth and income using concepts that are consistent with the macroeconomic national accounts. The focus lies not only on the national level, but also on the global and regional level.
