This paper looks at income and expenditure distributions over the 1980s and 1990s using data from Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) income and expenditure surveys showing that there was a significant increase in private income inequality including changes in the distribution of work across families, for example, an increase in both two-earner families and no-earner families.
