Inequality Among Seniors in Canada: The role of women's labour market experience"
CLSRN Working Paper No. 51, December 2009. (in submission)
The distribution of income among seniors in Canada has changed
substantially over the past decade, reflecting an overall increase in
income and an increase in income inequality. In this study I decompose
the distribution of income among senior couples to determine the extent
to which changes in the labour market activity and retirement experiences
of women and men have contributed to this shift in the income distribution.
I use data from the Canadian Survey of Labour and Income Dynamics, 1996
and 2006, and the methods of Firpo, Fortin and Lemieux (2007, 2009).
