Abstract

DAD is designed to facilitate the analysis and the comparisons of social welfare, inequality, poverty and equity across distributions of living standards and using disaggregated data. It is freely distributed. DAD's features include the estimation of a large number of indices and curves that are useful for distributive comparisons as well as the provision of various statistical tools to enable statistical inference. Many of the features are useful for estimating the impact of programs (and reforms to these programs) on poverty and equity.
