Equity by Peter J Lambert( file )
18 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 882 libraries worldwide
For equity, societies may wish to eliminate certain forms or manifestations of inequality. Horizontal equity and vertical equity in the income tax are topics which have interested me for some years. Although any shortfall from each of these objectives can be measured in terms of unwanted inequalities, equity per se is a different concept from equality. Equity relates to fairness, justice and other societal norms which give expression to the best aspirations of our collective social conscience. For example, equal access to health care for those in equal need is an accepted norm for horizontal

Measuring The Pro-Poorness of Income Growth Within An Elasticity Framework by B Essama-Nssah( file )
10 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Poverty reduction has become a fundamental objective of development, and therefore a metric for assessing the effectiveness of various interventions. Economic growth can be a powerful instrument of income poverty reduction. This creates a need for meaningful ways of assessing the poverty impact of growth. This paper follows the elasticity approach to propose a measure of pro-poorness defined as a weighted average of the deviation of a growth pattern from the benchmark case. The measure can help assess pro-poorness both in terms of aggregate poverty measures, which are members of the additively separable class, and at percentiles. It also lends itself to a decomposition procedure, whereby the overall pattern of income growth can be unbundled, and the contributions of income components to overall pro-poorness identified. An application to data for Indonesia in the 1990s reveals that the amount of poverty reduction achieved over that period remains far below what would have been achieved under distributional neutrality. This conclusion is robust to the choice of a poverty measure among members of the additively separable class, and can be tracked back to changes in expenditure components
On the measurement of horizontal inequity by Peter J Lambert( Book )
5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 27 libraries worldwide
This paper makes a new attack on the old problem of measuring horizontal inequity in the income tax. Local measures of inequality of posttax income among pretax equals are proposed, which reflect alternative value judgments about the nature and magnitude of an inequity. These measures are aggregated into global indices. The welfare gain from eliminating horizontal inequity revenue-neutrally, and the revenue gain from eliminating it welfare-neutrally, in each case preserving the vertical performance of the tax, are captured by these indices. Difficulties of implementation arising from the ?identification problem? are discussed. A variation in the methodology validates banding the income data to create ?close equals? groups. Simulations show that the banding procedure works well. A range of potentially fruitful applications is discussed
Vertical equity and horizontal inequity : a new approach to measurement by Nanak Kakwani( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 21 libraries worldwide
Welfare comparisons : sequential procedures for heterogeneous population by Peter J Lambert( Book )
5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 19 libraries worldwide
Some analysts use sequential dominance criteria , and others use equivalence scales in combination with non-sequential dominance tests, to make welfare comparisons of joint distributions of income and needs. In this paper we present a new sequential procedure which copes with situations in which sequential dominance fails. We also demonstrate that the recommendations deriving from the sequential approach are valid for distributions of equivalent income whatever equivalence scale the analyst might adopt. Thus the paper marries together the sequential and equivalizing approaches, seen as alternatives in much previous literature. All results are specified in forms which allow for demographic differences in the populations being compared
