Abstract [en]

This paper aims at examining the distribution of income, from labour, business and capital, in Stockholm during the period from 1870–1914. The main source material consists of population records, with income data for all tax payers, and the investigation is limited to three observation years; 1870, 1893 and 1914. The results show a slow general equalization of incomes (with aggregate data), especially so in the period from 1870–1893, and this is coinciding with a reduction of income share for the top 10 percent. The results do however show a growing inequality in income shares between men and women (with decomposed data), where women’s share declined throughout the whole period from 1870–1914.
