Desigualdad intermedia paretiana
AbstractIn Del Río and Ruiz-Castillo (2000) a new concept of intermediate inequality between the absolute and relative concept was proposed, and empirical procedures for a welfare analysis à la Shorrocks (1983) were developed. The aim of this paper is to use this methodology to difine a new concept, (x,d,p)- inequality, in order to range income distributions with higher relative inequality than the status quo, where the above concept does not apply. The interest of this approach is that we do not need to assume an a priori notion of inequality. In this vein, the data are the ones which allow us to characterize the inequality concept that makes two distributions to be equivalent. (Copyright: Fundación Empresa Pública)
