Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality


The Stone Center hosts a seminar series focused on inequality. The purpose of this series is to give researchers opportunities to present new work to enable intensive discussion and feedback.

Please join us for the first presentation of the 2018-2019 Inequality Seminar Series with Nishant Yonzan, PhD candidate in Economics at The Graduate Center, as well as a researcher at the Stone Center on Socio-Economic Inequality. His research is focused on the changes in the income distribution. He is interested in the role social and political factors play in the dispersion of income distribution, and, in turn, the socio-political implication of the dispersion of the income distribution. His current works include comparing top income shares using administrative and survey data sources, and a historical study of the dispersion of income in the UK.

His presentation will focus on "Assortative Mating over Labor Income and its implication on Income Inequality: A US perspective 1970-2017."
