About the Authors
  • This book is all about personal living standards--how to measure them, how they compare across countries, and how they relate to the type of household in which people live, the labor market, and the tax benefit system. Nineteen chapters, all specially written for this book by a distinguished set of international authors, provide new empirical evidence based on large-scale household surveys for several countries, plus new theoretical research about how to measure and compare living standards.

    • Distinguished authors, drawn from US and Europe
    • Evidence about cross-national differences in living standards and welfare
    • Uses a range of approaches, subjective and objective, to measure living standards and personal economic welfare
