    Abstract

    Este trabajo compara las escalas de equivalencia -escalas de Engel, condicionales- obtenidas en forma semi-parámetrica en base a los gastos de consumo de los hogares de la ciudad de Buenos Aires en dos períodos diferentes, con el objetivo de efectuar algunas consideraciones en términos de bienestar. Se emplean los datos de las dos últimas Encuestas de Gastos de los Hogares (ENGH) - 1996/97 y 2004/05. Como resultado, los valores de las escalas resultan mayores en el último período, como consecuencia de dos efectos que se refuerzan. Por un lado, la disminución de las economías a escala en el consumo aumenta el gasto que necesita una familia de mayor número de integrantes y, por el otro, el aumento en la ponderación que recibe un menor respecto de un adulto, aumenta proporcionalmente el gasto total de las familias con más niños.
