The study examines the evolution of income mobility for Canadian taxfilers from both the absolute and the relative perspectives. Using data from the Longitudinal Administrative Databank for the years 1982 to 2012, we estimated several income mobility statistics for overlapping panels of Canadian taxfilers over those 30 years. We also assessed the impact of mobility on long-term income inequality.
