A counting approach for measuring multidimensional deprivation
Aaberge, Rolf; Peluso, Eugenio (Discussion papers (Statistisk sentralbyrå. Forskningsavdelingen);No. 700, Working paper, 2012)This paper is concerned with the problem of ranking and quantifying the extent of deprivation exhibited by multidimensional distributions, where the multiple attributes in which an individual can be deprived are represented ... 
A framework for empirical modelling of consumer demand with latent quality attributes
Dagsvik, John K.; Zhu, Yu; Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 229, Working paper, 1998)This paper discusses a particular approach to empirical consumer demand modelling when products are differentiated and the product attributes are unobservable. In contrast to the traditional approach to this problem, see ... 
A structural approach for measuring fiscal disparities
Langørgen, Audun; Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 254, Working paper, 1999)Fiscal disparities arise from differences in costs and capacity to produce a standard package of public services. This paper proposes to use a structural modelling approach as basis for measuring fiscal disparities across ... 
A theory for ranking distribution functions
Aaberge, Rolf; Havnes, Tarjei; Mogstad, Magne (Discussion papers;763, Working paper, 201311)When is one distribution (of income, consumption, or some other economic variable) more equal or better than another? This question has proven difficult to answer in situations where distribution functions intersect and ... 
Accounting for family background when designing optimal income taxes : a microeconometric simulation analysis
Aaberge, Rolf; Colombino, Ugo (Discussion Papers;No. 619, Working paper, 2010)Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce and adopt a generalised version of Roemer's (1998) Equality of Opportunity (EOp) framework, which we call extended EOp, for analysing secondbest optimal income taxation. ... 
Accounting for family background when designing optimal income taxes: a microeconometric simulation analysis
Aaberge, Rolf; Colombino, Ugo (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2012)The purpose of this paper is to introduce and adopt a generalised version of Roemer's (1998) Equality of Opportunity (EOp) framework, which we call extended EOp, for analysing secondbest optimal income taxation. Unlike ... 
Analyse av ulikhet i fordelinger av levekår
Andersen, Arne; Aaberge, Rolf (Rapporter;1983/21, Research report, 1983)Ett av hovedformålene med en levekårsstatistikk er å belyse fordelingen av levekårene i befolkningen. En slik generell formulering av formålet kan imidlertid presiseres i en rekke ulike problemstillinger. Det er ganske ... 
Analyse av ulikhet i fordelinger av levekår
Andersen, Arne S.; Aaberge, Rolf (Rapporter;1983/21, Research report, 19830929) 
Assimilation effects on poverty among immigrants in Norway
Galloway, Taryn Ann; Aaberge, Rolf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2005)This paper discusses the question of whether or not the high incidence of poverty among immigrants in Norway persists even after immigrants have been in the country for a long period, i.e. after they have had the opportunity ... 
Asymptotic distribution theory of empirical rankdependent measures of inequality
Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 402, Working paper, 2005)Abstract: A major aim of most income distribution studies is to make comparisons of income inequality across time for a given country and/or compare and rank different countries according to the level of income inequality. ... 
Axiomatic characterization of the Gini coefficient and Lorenz curve orderings
Aaberge, Rolf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2001)This paper is concerned with distributions of income and the ordering of related Lorenz curves. By introducing appropriate preference relations on the set of Lorenz curves, two alternative axiomatic characterizations of ... 
Birds of a feather flock together : the impact of choice of spouse on family labor income inequality
Aslaksen, Iulie; Wennemo, Tom; Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 276, Working paper, 2000)This paper discusses the effects of the substantial rise in labor force participation of married women on the level, structure and trend in family labor income inequality. An interesting question is to what extent the rise ... 
Birds of a feather flock together’: the impact of choice of spouse on family labor income inequality
Aslaksen, Iulie; Wennemo, Tom; Aaberge, Rolf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2005)This paper analyzes to what extent the rise in women's labor force participation has led to ‘flocking together’, i.e. whether women with high labor income tend to be married to men with high labor income, or vice versa. ... 
Characterization and measurement of duration dependence in hazard rate models
Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 319, Working paper, 2002)Abstract: As is known from the economic literature, the notion of negative/positive duration dependence defined in terms of a decreasing/increasing hazard function can solely be used as a basis for revealing whether ... 
Choosing measures of inequality for empirical applications
Aaberge, Rolf (Discussion Papers;No. 158, Working paper, 1995)This paper is concerned with the distribution of income and the problem of choosing summary measures of inequality for empirical applications. By introducing a simple transformation of the Lorenz curve one is led to three ... 
Decomposition of rankdependent measures of inequality by subgroups
Aaberge, Rolf; Bjerve, Steinar; Doksum, Kjell (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2005)Summary  The purpose of additive subgroup decomposition is to study the relationship between overall inequality and inequality within and between population subgroups defined by variables like gender, age, education and ...

Decomposition of the gini coefficient by income components : various types of applications and interpretations
Aaberge, Rolf; Aslaksen, Iulie (Discussion Papers;No. 182, Working paper, 1996)This paper aims at clarifying the notion "overall distributive effect" of an income component or a policy proposal and moreover discusses various approaches for assessing the distributional impact of the components of total ... 
Designing optimal taxes with a microeconometric model of household labour supply
Aaberge, Rolf; Colombino, Ugo (Discussion Papers;No. 475, Working paper, 2006)Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present an exercise where we identify optimal income tax rules under the constraint of fixed tax revenue. To this end, we estimate a microeconomic model with 78 parameters that ... 
The Distributional impact of public services when needs differ
Aaberge, Rolf; Bhuller, Manudeep; Langørgen, Audun; Mogstad, Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2010)Despite a broad consensus on the need to take into account the value of public services in distributional analysis, there is little reliable evidence on how the inclusion of such noncash income actually affects poverty ...
