PROGRES: Stata module to measure distributive effects of an income tax
progres is a module for assessing the distributive effects of an income tax. progres takes unit-record data on pre-tax and post-tax income and computes several classic measures of (net) redistributive effects, progressivity, vertical equity and reranking (horizontal inequity). All indices are derived from (generalized) Gini coefficients of inequality and (generalized) concentration coefficients.
