Income Dynamics statistics

Income Dynamics experimental statistics provide information on changes in income over time.

Income Dynamics provides estimates of the likelihood of the same people being persistently in low income in at least 3 out of 4 years and of mobility across the income distribution.

The Income Dynamics publication is based on Understanding Society data.

These are experimental statistics.
