The 'natural' bidimensional decomposition of inequality indices: evaluating factor contributions to households welfare inequality in Cameroon, 1996-2001
AbstractThis article proposes a simultaneous (income source and population subgroup) decomposition of inequality indices. The starting point is the Shorrocks' natural income source decomposition. The approach adopted leads to a factor contributions formula, which is independent of the inequality measure chosen. This method is applied to decompose and analyse Cameroonian households' inequality during the 1996-2001 period.
