Inequality and well-being in income distribution, 1973-2000

This paper aims to present an assessment of changes in inequality and well-being differences across the Spanish regions in a wide time period (1973-2000). Using the basic Family Budget Surveys and the longitudinal-yearly Family Budget Continuous Survey 2000, we analyze inequality differences and trends, the changes in the structure of inequality and the convergence process. We also use abbreviated social welfare functions in order to capture regional differences and their changes over time.
