Measuring equivalence scales. A new system-wide method

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The paper proposes a new system-wide method to measure general and commodity-specific equivalence scales and reports some budget standards for policy use in Australia. Based essentially on duality theorems of consumption theory, the method is computationally simple and can be used in models of hierarchic or ordered preferences when data on certain commodities are unreliable. © 1986.
