Regression-based inequality decomposition
This talk discusses ineqrbd, a program for OLS regression-based decomposition suggested by G.S. Fields (“Accounting for Income Inequality and Its Change: A New Method, with Application to the Distribution of Earnings in the United States”, Research in Labor Economics, 2003). It provides an exact decomposition of the inequality of total income into inequality contributions from each of the factor components (or determinants) of total income.
