Abstract

En este trabajo se plantea una definición estrictamente económica de lo que deben ser las escalas de equivalencia basadas en un concepto de bienestar material y respaldadas por los fundamentos de Teoría Económica. En este sentido se definen las escalas de equivalencia de consumo como el cociente de los costes que soportan dos familias para alcanzar un mismo nivel de bienestar, dados unos mismos precios de mercado y una composición demográfica distinta en cada hogar. In this paper we establish a strictly economic definition of equivalence scales based on a concept of material welfare and supported in the foundations of Economic Theory. Then we define consumer equivalence sacales as the costs rate of two households with a same leve of welfare, same market prices and a different demographic compositsion.
