UNU-WIDER Income Inequality Dataset version 2.0a (June 2005) provides cross-country panel income inequality data. This dataset incorporates updates to Deininger and Squire (1996)'s inequality data, used extensively by economists investigating the inequality-growth relationship (see Banerjee and Duflo (2003) for a definitive analysis).
For criticism on income inequality data, see Atkinson and Brandolini (2001).
For an attempt to overcome such criticism by a political scientist, see Solt (2009).
