PROJECT: The objective of the project "Toward an empirical history of global income distribution" is to use the results of empirical historical research regarding average income levels in preindustrial and early modern societies and combine it with distributional data (mostly social tables) in order to generate global (worldwide) income distribution at different salient points in the past. This should provide a first estimate of how global income distribution -an outcome of two forces: differential growth rates of different economies and charges in income distributions within nations- has evolved in the course of history.
