Social Security Benefits and Interregional Income Inequalities: The Case of the Netherlands


  • Stoffelsma, Ronald J
  • Oosterhaven, Jan


In affluent mixed economies, social security programs are often the single most effective instrument to reach a minimal level of interregional income inequality. This paper extensively investigates the spatial structure and the interregional impacts of these programs in the Netherlands, using a mixture of decomposition techniques, factor analysis and cluster analysis.
