Abstract: This paper presents a review of the scope, methodologies and main findings of sixteen gendered fiscal incidence studies. Of the sixteen studies, seven focused on measuring gender equity in government spending on education and health, five on estimating the incidence of taxes only, and the remaining four on estimating the effect of partial combinations of taxes and transfers. The studies provide useful insights regarding the presence or absence of gender equity implied by specific taxes and transfers or some combinations. One main conclusion is that there is no comprehensive study that looks at the incidence of taxes and cash and in-kind transfers combined.
