Household behaviour, equivalence scales, welfare and poverty by Camilo Dagum( Book )
14 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 168 libraries worldwide
The book presents a quantitative analysis of household income distribution, welfare, poverty, cost of raising children, and taxation problems. The innovative construction of equivalence scales as an instrument for the assessment of these variables allows a unified treatment of households of different sizes and age composition with the scope of advancing a meaningful and relevant research on welfare, taxation, and poverty. Each chapter of the book offers a self-contained theoretical and methodological presentation, enhanced with applications to real-life case studies
Advances in econometrics, income distribution and scientific methodology : essays in honor of Camilo Dagum by Daniel Jonathan Slottje( Book )
9 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Articles on econometric methodology with special reference to the quantification of poverty and economic inequality are presented in this book. Poverty and inequality measurement present special problems to the econometrician, and most of these papers analyze how to attack those problems. The topics and contributions in the book are a very good representation of Camilo Dagum's astounding diversity of interests and overall eclecticism. Several of the authors are leading pioneers in econometric methodology. Several others are pioneers in economic theory and others are the leading applied economists in income distribution analysis in the world. The topics accurately reflect Camilo Dagum's breadth of understanding across varios economic sub-fields, all complex in nature
Income and wealth distribution, inequality and poverty : proceedings of the second International Conference on Income Distribution by Size, Generation, Distribution, Measurement, and Applications, held at the University of Pavia, Italy, September 28-30, 1989 by Camilo Dagum( Book )
13 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 162 libraries worldwide
This book deals with the following issues: the analysis, estimation and assessment of alternatived models of income distribution, the specification and evaluation of income inequality measures the analysis and measurement of poverty and its rationale, the scope and methodological power of the social accounting matrix (SAM) in the analysis of the functional and personal distribution of income and the family income multiplier, the study of the source and reliability of income distribution data, the decomposition of income inequality measures, the asymptotic distributions and inferential analysis of income inequalities, and an inquiry on the income distribution and income inequality of Eastern European Countries under socialism. New models on income and wealth distribution are specified and their corresponding properties and goodness of fit are discussed. A multivariate approach to the measurement of poverty is developed and applied, and a compact survey of the literature is presented. The book can be used as a text in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses dealing with the theory, model specifications, methods and applications of income and wealth distribution, income inequality and poverty assessment in measurement and the use of SAMs in the analysis of income distribution

A new approach to inflation through the joint analysis of economics efficiency and social welfare; a case study: Argentina by Camilo Dagum( Book )
3 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The paper points out the main elements under analysis in a study aimed at bringing out the relevant causes of inflation in each kind of economic structure. It stresses the necessity of a direct answer to questions like when, where, why and how an inflationary process is generated as well as its economic, political and social consequences. Further, it points out the necessity of analyzing the nature of inflation and its circumstances rather than contrasting structuralism vs. monetarism. It seeks to specify the cases of inflation, their direction, intensity and interaction in a given type of economic and social structure. With that aim the ideas of economic efficiency and social welfare are introduced and applied to an interpretation of the Argentine case during the last hundred years. (Author)

On deterministic and stochastic structures by Camilo Dagum( Book )
3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
The concept of a modern society as opposed to a traditional (backward) society and the idea of structural change underline nearly all up to date economic policies of development. The notion of structural change is at stake first of all in the current polemic on causes of inflation between the Latin American school of inflation (structuralist school) the more orthodox monetarist school. We can trace it also in the theoretical foundations of any economic policy. Nevertheless, the concept of structure has not a clearcut statement outside econometrics. The purpose of this paper is to develop a quantitative and operational concept of structure and, as a consequence, a quantitative and operational concept of structural change. With that aim the deterministic and stochastic postulates are introduced in terms of the notion of probability space. These concepts together with the notion of parameter space bring out definitions of stochastic and deterministic structures and structural changes. These elements allow a direct interpretation and measure of economic development in terms of a notion of structural change derived from: (a) an observed structure, (b) the formulation of an objective structure and (c) a given decision model (philosophy of action).

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
Multivariate transvariation theory among several distributions and its economic applications by Camilo Dagum( Book )
2 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 6 libraries worldwide
The report describes the theory of transvariation for multivariate distribution functions. The author has defined and deduced the parameters of transvariation; first, without any assumption of parametric distribution functions (nonparametric case); and second, under the assumption of multivariate normal distributions. The research continued with the study of the theory of transvariation among several (three or more) multivariate distribution functions. For the purpose of simplifying computation, the author has introduced a linear transformation that allows the application of bivariate transvariation theory to the transformed variables. The multivariate normal distribution is considered after the proof of two Lemmas regarding the distribution of a linear function of correlated normal random variables. For the case of more than two multivariate distributions, Gini's aggregative method is applied to simplify further the computations in the applications. The applications of this paper are in the field of comparative static economics. They affirm the fruitfulness of transvariation theory as a quantitative method in comparative statics (intertemporal and interspatial comparative analysis). (Author)
