Joint hypothesis tests for multidimensional inequality indices.

Abul Naga, R. H. and Shen, Y. and Yoo, H. I. (2016) 'Joint hypothesis tests for multidimensional inequality indices.', Economics letters., 141 . pp. 138-142.


An inequality index over p dimensions of well-being is decomposable by attributes if it can expressed as a function of p unidimensional inequality indices and a measure of association between the various dimensions of well-being. We exploit this decomposition framework to derive joint hypothesis tests regarding the sources of multidimensional inequality, and present Monte Carlo evidence on their finite sample behavior.
