Reranking and the Analysis of Income Redistribution

Author

Listed:
  • Jenkins, Stephen

Abstract

This paper shows that reranking of income units by the redistributive process "matters" because ignoring it can lead to biases in estimates of the degree of inequality, and of redistributive effect and progressivity. The theoretical arguments are illustrated using household micro-data from the 1971 U.K. Family Expenditure Survey. Copyright 1988 by Scottish Economic Society.
