Self-Employment and the Distribution of Income
The number of self-employed people in the UK nearly doubled during the 1980s. This study is based on an extensive review of existing research and data sources about the incomes of the self-employed.
Detailed analysis of the income levels of the self-employed, and of older people who have been self-employed during their working lives, shows that the expansion of self-employment has important implications for the distribution of income in the UK.
