Title The income distribution with multiple sources of survey error
Author(s)
Publication (Day/Month/Year) 2013
Abstract
Estimating parameters of the income distribution in public-use micro datasets is frequently complicated by multiple sources of survey error. This dissertation consists of three main chapters that, taken together, provide insight into several important econometric concerns that arise when analysing income from household surveys. The country of interest is South Africa, but despite this geographical specificity, the discussion in each chapter is generalisable to any household survey concerned with measuring any component of income.
