A Geographical Decomposition of Intercountry Income Inequality
AbstractWe analyze the evolution of intercountry income inequality and its decomposition between and within four geographical clusters and their fifteen regions from 1960 to 1990 by applying the income-weighted entropy measure. Our analysis assesses the contribution of income inequality within and between the geographical clusters and their regions to three global trends: strong divergence between 1960 and 1968, slow convergence between 1969 and 1983, and stagnation between 1984 and 1990.
