On the variability of income within and across generations
() and Lena Lindahl
Abstract: We examine the association of income variability both
within and across generations based on a heterogeneous growth model of
permanent and transitory income in Sweden. Non-parametric regressions
reveal that income variability is strongly associated with long-run levels
of income, especially for low- and high income earners, and that it is also
strongly associated across generations.
