    Abstract

    This paper presents a tax-benefit incidence analysis for a large time period. The objective is to know if has been income redistribution across Mexican households during the last twenty years, since during this period the Mexican economy has suffered important structural changes and as well its public policies. The analysis is based on four National Income Surveys, thus combining microdata, and inequality and redistributive indexes was possible to distinguish the progressivity degree for every kind of taxes and transfers, and once calculated the tax and transfers vectors was possible to have a redistributive net vector by decil. Thus, were calculated the net transfers across the Mexican families after fiscal policies and its inequality improvements.
