The rising share of non-working households

Household structure, labour participation and economic inequality in Britain, 1937-61

This paper investigates household income/expenditure inequality using survey data for the United Kingdom from 1937 to 1961. We find little change in inequality for incomes below the top 5 per cent or 10 per cent. This is consistent with the tax unit data. EHR, 2023
