''Decomposing equality of opportunity by income sources''
( 2009, Vol. 29 No.2 )
An opportunity egalitarian view focus not only on equality of outcomes but essentially on the means or opportunities to realize such outcomes. In this paper we propose a methodology to decompose an opportunity egalitarian Atkinson index by income sources seeking for a measure of overall equality into an opportunity and a responsibility component.
Keywords: equality of opportunity, measurement, equivalent income, income sources, factor components
