Personal non-wealth income inequality and tax evasion in Greece 1962-1975

Παρασκευάς Βακαρέζος


The purpose of this study is to describe personal non-wealth income inequality
in Greece covering the total of the economically active population as well
as the group of pensioners for a number of years that data are availablbe (1962-
1975). The computational procedure does not follow the traditional treatment of
the subject i.e. the use of tax return data, but a rather complex and indirect way
that ensures coverage of the total population that receives income. The results
show a trend towards worsening of inequality. A side result is the estimation of
tax evasion which is also shown to exhibit a worsening trend.
