Income Inequality in Java: Relating the Increases to the Changing Age, Educational and Industrial Structure

Lisa Cameron ()

No 574, Department of Economics - Working Papers Series from The University of Melbourne

Abstract: This paper draws on the work of DiNardo, Fortin and Lemieux (1996) and presents a new method for examining the distribution of the benefits of growth in developing countries. The method allows one to present decompositions in the form of cumulative distribution functions, Lorenz curves and generalised Lorenz curves. The presentation of changes in the entire distribution is an advantage over the traditional methods of decomposing opaque summary statistics.
