Abstract

Se propone un procedimiento para comparar desigualdad entre distribuciones de renta utilizando una batería de indicadores de desigualdad, lo que permite además una evaluación de sus respectivos sistemas de ponderación. Este procedimiento se revela igualmente válido para el análisis comparativo del nivel de vida-renta en tales circunstancias. Finalmente, se utiliza para comparar la desigualdad y el nivel de vida-renta de las Comunidades Autónomas españolas en el período 1973-1991, utilizando datos de ingreso de las Encuestas Básicas de Presupuestos Familiares, corregidos del efecto “ocultación de renta”. A procedure to compare inequality between income distributions from a set of indicators is proposed. It also allows the evaluation of each indicator’s system of weights. This procedure is proved adequate to compare income-welfare level in such circumstances. Finally, it is used to compare inequality and income-welfare among Spanish regions between 1973 and 1991, using income data from the Spanish Survey of Familiar Budgets (EBPF), applying a mechanism to correct the observed underestimation of declared incomes.
