Abstract:

Factors affecting the dynamics of income inequality in the US during the 1948-92 period are examined. Specifically, it extends the work of Maxwell, who found that through-time changes in family income inequality are related to demographic and industry factors, and draws upon the insights of other researchers who have recognized that the US national economy is actually a composite of semi-autonomous regional economies. The results provide strong evidence that family income inequality is related to the pattern of regional economic growth and the relative proportion of unmarried families.
