Topic Income & Earnings Volatility

Short-term fluctuations in family incomes and in workers’ earnings have consequences not only for family economic wellbeing but also for the health of the broader U.S. economy. Equitable Growth serves as a hub for researchers working on defining levels and trends in U.S. family income and earnings volatility, connecting the dots between these metrics and outcomes for a variety of social policies and programs while simultaneously growing the evidence base for how these micr0-level trends for families and individuals are impacting the strength and stability of the economy.
