Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics

Abstract: unemp computes aggregate households employment deprivation measures which are sensitive to the distribution of employment among deprived households. The individual gap in employment can either be a dummy (1 if unemployed, 0 if employed) or a continuous variable (i.e. relative gap in hours worked with respect to whished hours). The program computes the family of FGT-type unemployment measures at the household level proposed in Gradin, Canto, and Del Rio, "Measuring employment deprivation in the EU using a household-level index", Review of Economics of the Household. It first computes a household-level deprivation measure and then aggregates across all target households.
