UNEMP: Stata module module to compute aggregate households employment deprivation (or unemployment) measures
unemp computes aggregate households employment deprivation measures which are sensitive to the distribution of employment among deprived households. The individual gap in employment can either be a dummy (1 if unemployed, 0 if employed) or a continuous variable (i.e. relative gap in hours worked with respect to whished hours). The program computes the family of FGT-type unemployment measures at the household level proposed in Gradin, Canto, and Del Rio, "Measuring employment deprivation in the EU using a household-level index", Review of Economics of the Household. It first computes a household-level deprivation measure and then aggregates across all target households.
