Electoral systems and income inequality
ULB Institutional Repository from ULB -- Universite Libre de Bruxelles
The goal of this paper is to determine if electoral systems and inequality are linked. Using high-quality data (LIS database) and simple panel methods, we show that when the degree of proportionality of a system increases, inequality decreases. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
