Abstract

Nous proposons une nouvelle méthode de décomposition. La multidécomposition de l’indicateur de Gini combine deux méthodes de décomposition : la décomposition en sous-groupes et la décomposition en sources de revenu. La technique retenue est mise en oeuvre dans le cadre d’une étude concernant les revenus italiens des années 1989 et 2000. Elle permet de mettre en évidence la faiblesse du rôle des transferts et des pensions dans la réduction des inégalités intragroupes et intergroupes.
