Intertemporal and interprovincial variations in income inequality: Spain, 1973-1991
Goerlich F. J. and Mas M. (2002) Intertemporal and interprovincial variations in income inequality: Spain, 1973-1991, Reg. Studies 36, 1005-1015. The paper presents the main findings on personal income distribution for the Spanish provinces over the period 1973-91. The information comes from the three structural Household Budget Surveys and has been elaborated by the authors on a homogeneous base (available at: http://www.ivie.es). It starts by reviewing the information provided by some dispersion statistics, including kernel density functions, applied to the provincial Gini indices and Lorenz percentiles. It goes on to test, making use of an ANOVA model, two propositions related with intertemporal and interprovincial variations in inequality. The penultimate section, before the conclusions, deals with the estimation of β-convergence equations in inequality.
