I've been trying to think of a way to accurately refer to the income distribution without using the word "distribution." When economists think of income distribution, they are thinking about statistics and pdfs. I believe when others hear of it, the statistical noun "distribution" is transformed in their mind to the verb "distribute" (as in "we shall distribute the income accordingly") or perhaps the adjective "distributed" (as in "the income was distributed in this fashion"). Since income and wealth are created, not distributed, how can I rephrase income distribution into something that is accurate and remains accurate in the mind of the listener? My own ideas are too long, bulky, and academicy, like "...the proportionality of income creation...".
Any suggestions would be a public good.
