''Determinant Factors of Income Inequality – Evidence from a Portuguese Region''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.3 )
We propose a new methodology, based on bilateral comparisons between households, to analyze the determinants of income inequality, and confirm the influence of variables related to: (i) socio-economic characteristics of the household, (ii) dimension and composition of the household, (iii) the number of households in the residence, and (iv) socio-economic characteristics of the individual of reference.
Keywords: bilateral inequality, determinant factors, income.
