The bidimensional decomposition of the Gini ratio. A case study: Italy

Author

  • Stephane Mussard

Abstract

This research is based on the decompositions of the Gini index. The two existing procedures of decomposition are connected: subgroup decomposition and income source decomposition. This bidimensional decomposition enables the computation of some new determinants of inequalities. It is possible to reckon the contribution of each source to the within-group and the between-group components of the overall inequality. This bidimensional decomposition is applied to the Italian consumption in 1989 and 2000.
