Properties of Equivalence Scales in Different Countries
AbstractRecent studies in high-income industrialized countries have shown that equivalence scales are income-dependent. We investigate whether this dependence also holds in poorer, services oriented countries, by considering the example of Cyprus. We also examine whether household economies of scale and relative children costs differ.
