Inequality is now receiving considerable media attention. Yet, even when empirical indices of inequality are presented, conceptual and measurement difficulties are often ignored. In this talk, Professor Creedy discusses some of the difficulties of providing summary information about inequality changes, stressing the central role of value judgements. Information about changing inequality in New Zealand and Australia from the 1930s is examined.
