This chapter discusses the different sources of longitudinal data on income, focusing on administrative record data and household panel surveys (of which the British Household Panel Survey used in the rest of the book is an example), and compares their strengths and weaknesses. Variations in household panel survey designs are explained using illustrations from around the world. The discussion also serves as an introduction to the longitudinal datasets that have been used to undertake the cross-national comparative analysis that is discussed in the book.
