Veinte años de estancamiento en la distribución del ingreso de las familias Mexicanas. Un enfoque de microdatos
This paper presents the evolution of family income in the Mexican economy during the period 1984-2004, in which Mexico registered an important structural change. The analysis is based on microdata and inequality indexes. Once obtained the family income, was possible to identify which families improved and which families lost positions on the distribution income. Even though the whole families increased their incomes, the income growth rate was more dynamic for the well off families. Thus, the worse income distribution has showed the low effectiveness of public distributive policies.
