    Description

    Significant increases in income and wealth inequality could have detrimental effects on economic and political stability. In China gini coefficient increased from around 0.28 in 1980, among the lowest in the world, to around 0.60 in 2012, one of the highest in the world. This project examines whether the substantial increase in income inequality is also associate with substantial increase in inequalities in other well-being related outcomes: health, education and wealth, and what are the factors associated with the increase in inequalities in these outcomes. The results from this project may help to identify policies useful in combat these inequalities. Being Australia's important trading partner, China's stability will benefit Australia
