International Comparisons of Welfare and Poverty: Dominance Orderings for Ten Countries
AbstractInference-based stochastic dominance procedures are applied to Luxembourg Income Study data to rank ten western countries in terms of standards of living and poverty. First-order dominance comparisons ranks more than 50 percent of all pairwise comparisons and second-order (generalized Lorenz) dominance adds another 25 percent. Truncated dominance analysis is used to make inferences about poverty and up to 98 percent of the truncated distributions are ordered. The results differ substantially from those obtained when only relative incomes and inequality are considered.
