Lifetime approach to measuring inequality in living standards in Australia

Project stage: initial

This is part of my Postdoctoral Fellowship working with A/Prof Chung Tran (Research School of Economics, The Australian National University) on his ARC Discovery Project. The project aims to measure inequality in living standards in Australia over the whole lifetime, and examine the role of the Australian fiscal system in redistributing lifetime resources across households and generations. I am currently working on implementing machine learning algorithms to lifetime income profiles for different birth cohorts using various panel data, cross-sectional survey data and administrative tax data for Australia.
