Does higher economic growth reduce poverty and increase inequality? Evidence from Urban India

  • Tripathi, Sabyasachi

This paper calculates select urban inequality and poverty indices and finds their policy linkages. In addition, the determinants of urban poverty and inequality are estimated by using data of 52 large cities in India. The main results show that higher city economic growth and large city population agglomeration are associated with reduction in city poverty and increase in inequality between cities.
