This contribution is based on the project "Income and Wealth Inequality, Deprivation, and Well-Being in Switzerland, 1990-2013," supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, grant number [100017_143320]. We conducted this study using data collected by the Swiss Household Panel (SHP), which is based at the Swiss Centre of Expertise in the Social Sciences (FORS); the Swiss National Science Foundation finances the SHP. This paper also uses unit record data from the Household, Income, and Labour Dynamics in Australia (HILDA) Survey. The Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS) initiated and funded the HILDA Project and the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research (Melbourne Institute) managed it. The findings and views in this paper, however, are those of the authors and should not be attributed to either DSS or the Melbourne Institute. The gender equality grant of the University of Neuchatel also partly funded this research. We would like to thank Ursina Kuhn, Pascale Gazareth, Jehane Simona, Katia Iglesias Rutishauser, and Christian Suter for their useful comments and advice.
