Abstract

Les mesures traditionnelles des inegalites considerent l'aversion collective a l'egard des inegalites comme un parametre determine a priori. En particulier, ce parametre est maintenu constant lorsqu'on effectue des comparaisons internationales ou intertemporelles. Nous proposons ici d'utiliser les donnees fiscales pour construire un indicateur d'inegalites qui tienne compte de l'attitude collective a l'egard des inegalites. Nous utilisons cet indicateur pour mesurer l'evolution des inegalites de revenus en France entre 1990 et 1997, a partir des donnees du modele de micro-simulation construit par la division "Etudes Sociales" de l'INSEE.
