  1. ***p < 0.01, **p < 0.05, *p < 0.1. Standard errors are robust and clustered by country and cohort. Each row corresponds to a different regression and only reports the corresponding income inequality coefficient. Each regression includes the same covariates as in Table 5, and year dummies. In the first panel, inequality measures are lagged one year with respect to the ESS wave as in previous specifications. In the middle panel, inequality measures are lagged two years. In the bottom panel, the inequality measures are the averages of the one and two year lags.
