    Abstract

    This paper analyzes the consequences of non-classical measurement error for distributional analysis. We show that for a popular set of distributions negative correlation between the measurement error (u) and the true value (y) may reduce the bias in the estimated distribution at every value of y*. For other distributions the impact of non-classical measurement differs throughout results using models of unemployment duration and income.
