4. Noon, October 30th, a statistics “unconference,” on-line.
6. An older post on household size and stagnant median income; good readers will recall this passage from TGS, which I also blogged: “Since 1989, the size-adjusted and size-unadjusted measures have been rising at roughly the same rate and post-1979 the difference between the size-adjusted and the size-unadjusted median income measures is never more than 0.3 percent.” Note also that the economic problems of 1973-1982 or so were from two oil price shocks (very directly TGS) and also from a required disinflation. In this sense too changing household size from that earlier period is a red herring.
