Abstract

Information about public education in Bogotá is used in this article to evaluate the redistributive impact of subsidies using incidence analysis on income and expenditure by levels of strata and localities. Results indicate that education subsidies and new public policies have had strong progressive impacts on the income and expenditure of the poorest households in Bogotá, implying reductions both in poverty and inequality, regardless of the methodology used to calculate the subsidy.
