On Equity Aspects of Imperfect Income Distribution
The author develops a theoretical analysis of the impact of imperfect targeting, participation costs, and incomplete take-up upon the the level of progressivity, vertical equity, horizontal inequity, and redistribution exerted by state benefits. An illustration using the distribution of British Supplementary Benefits (now Income Support) indicates that progressivity is roughly untouched, vertical equity and horizontal inequity are increased, and total income redistribution is slightly increased by these redistributive imperfection in 1985 Britain.
