Individual well-being in a dynamic perspective by Conchita D'Ambrosio( file )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
"This paper explores the determinants of individual well-being as measured by self-reported levels of satisfaction with income. Making full use of the panel data nature of the German Socio-Economic Panel, we provide empirical evidence for well-being depending on absolute and on relative levels of income in a dynamic framework. This finding holds after controlling for other influential factors in a multivariate setting. The main novelty of the paper is the consideration of dynamic aspects: individual's own history as well as the relative income performance with respect to the others living in the society under analysis do play a major role in the assessment of well-being"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
The measurement of social exclusion by Satya R Chakravarty( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
This paper develops an axiomatic approach to the measurement of social exclusion. At the individual level, social exclusion is viewed in terms of deprivation of the person concerned with respect to different functionings in the society. At the aggregate level we treat social exclusion as a function of individual exclusions. The class of subgroup decomposable social exclusion measures using a set of independent axioms is identified. We then look at the problem of ranking exclusion profiles by exclusion dominance principle under certain restrictions. Finally, applications of decomposable and non-decomposable measures suggested in the paper using European Union and Italian data are also considered
Income thresholds and incom classes by Conchita D'Ambrosio( Book )
4 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This paper proposes a method for detecting income classes based on the change-point problem. There is an increasing demand for such a method in the literature. Computation of polarization indices requires a pre-grouping of the incomes. Similarly, indices of social exclusion and sometimes indices of income inequality require detection of thresholds. The estimation procedure is implemented using a bootstrap technique. Finally, an application of the method to EU member states and to the United States is also considered
Target shortfall orderings and indices by Satya R Chakravarty( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Given any income distribution, to each income we associate a subgroup containing all persons whose incomes are not higher than this income and a person's target shortfall in a subgroup is the gap between the subgroup highest income and his own income. We then develop an absolute target shortfall ordering, which, under constancy of population size and total income, implies the Lorenz and Cowell-Ebert complaint orderings. Under the same restrictions, one distribution dominates the other by this ordering if and only if the dominated distribution can be obtained from the dominant one by a sequence of rank preserving progressive transfers, where each transfer is shared equally by all persons poorer than the donor of the transfer. The relationship of the ordering with the absolute deprivation and differential orderings, and its consistency with ranking of distributions by absolute target shortfall indices are explored. Well-known inequality indices like the absolute Gini index and the standard deviation are interpreted as absolute target shortfall indices. Finally, the possibility of a relative target shortfall ordering is also discussed

A non-parametric approach to the income and wages distribution : an application to Italy by Conchita D'Ambrosio( Archival Material )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
This dissertation presents a non-parametric procedure to analyze the effects of changes in household and workers characteristics on observed movements in the distribution of income and wages. These effects are estimated by applying kernel density methods to appropriate samples in order to obtain counterfactual distributions. The approach here proposed offers a new decomposition method of within and between group components that differs from the classical one of additively decomposable inequality indices. The new method allows one to monitor what factors modified the entire distribution, where precisely on the distribution these factors had an effect and what determined the variation in the level of social distance between groups or geographic areas. Summary statistics of the observed movements and of distance and divergence among the estimated and the counterfactual distributions are provided as well as a new index of social distance. The new methodology is then applied to Italian data on income and wages distribution between 1987 and 1995. One of the main findings is that the observed increase in overall dispersion is due to a rise in social distance among geographic regions

Is wealth becoming more polarized in the United States? by Conchita D'Ambrosio( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Recent work has documented a rising degree of wealth inequality in the United States between 1983 and 1998. In this paper, we look at another dimension of the distribution, polarization. Using techniques developed by Esteban and Ray (1994) and further extended by D'Ambrosio (2001), we examine whether a similar pattern exists with regard to trends in wealth polarization over this period. The approach here followed provides a decomposition method, based on counterfactual distributions, which allows one to monitor what factors modified the entire distribution and where precisely on the distribution these factors had an effect. An index of polarization is provided as well as summary statistics of the observed movements and of distance and divergence among the estimated and the counterfactual distributions. The decomposition method is applied to US data on the distribution of wealth between 1983 and 1998. We find that polarization between homeowners and tenants, as well as among different educational groups, continuously increased from 1983 to 1998, while polarization by income classes groups continuously decreased. In contrast, polarization by racial group first increased from 1983 to 1989 and then declined from 1989 to 1998, while polarization by age groups followed the opposite pattern. We also find that most of the observed variation in the overall wealth density over the 1983-98 period can be attributed to changes of the within-group wealth densities rather than to changes in household characteristics over the period
Subjective Well-Being and Relative Deprivation : An Empirical Link by Conchita D'Ambrosio( file )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"This paper explores the relationship between two well-established concepts of measuring individual well-being: the concept of happiness, i.e. self-reported level of satisfaction with income and life, and relative deprivation/satisfaction, i.e. the gaps between the individual's income and the incomes of all individuals richer/poorer than him. Operationalizing both concepts using micro panel data from the German Socio-Economic Panel (SOEP), we provide empirical evidence for subjective well-being depending more on relative satisfaction than on absolute levels of income. This finding holds even after controlling for other influential factors in a multivariate setting"--Forschungsinstitut zur Zukunft der Arbeit web site
