Health component of inequalities associated with income mobility over the life cycle

Abstract

"From the two-wave French Health and Professional Career survey in 2006 and 2010, the income distribution associated with income mobility between these two dates shows that income inequalities are smaller than those observed cross-sectionally in 2006 and in 2010. Income mobility between 2006 and 2010 implies a more egalitarian distribution than is observed at either of these dates. The upward gradient in observed inequalities over the life cycle no longer holds true for the distribution of inequalities associated with the conditions of the moment. Ill health still favors inequality, particularly because health is worst at low incomes. Ill health exacerbates inequalities, an effect that is larger the more inegalitarian the income distribution."
