Abstract:

Changes in demographic structures and lower household sizes have dampened the economic welfare of OECD populations. They have also contributed to wider income inequalities because of the increased importance of people living alone and of lone parents. These changes have been accompanied by significant shifts in the relative income of various groups, with people in their later working life gaining the most and those entering the labour market and lone parents losing ground.
