Equivalence Scales Subjective Methods 3 The most popular PES, which only takes into account family size N, has the following parametric form: [1] which links equivalent and nominal income in the following way:4 [2] σ = N y ye where 0≤σ≤1 is a «SCALE RELATIVITY PARAMETER»5 measuring the intensity of economies of scale in consumption. In music theory, a scale is any set of musical notes ordered by fundamental frequency or pitch.A scale ordered by increasing pitch is an ascending scale, and a scale ordered by decreasing pitch is a descending scale. Some scales contain different pitches when ascending than when descending, for example, the melodic minor scale.. Often, especially in the context of the common practice period.

A Brief History of Equivalence Scales in New Zealand. The modern investigation of the income distribution in New Zealand can said to have been stimulated by the Royal Commission on Social Security, which sat between and when it reported. If so, the first New Zealander to address the issue of equivalence scales was Bill Sutch, who. Downloadable! This paper examines the sensitivity of inequality and poverty measures to the adult equivalence scale and the unit of analysis. Comparisons are made using parametric equivalence scales, and income units include individuals, equivalent adults and households. The role of the correlation between equivalent income and household size, and the weight attached to children, is examined.

Programmatic Equivalence Scales In addition to the scale implicit in the official poverty thresholds, there are a number of other scales embodied in government programs or official pronouncements; see Table Subjective methods – Parametric equivalence scales Parametric methods of estimating equivalence scales are the shortest way for an analyst to achieve the result of comparing households of different sizes and composition.

The main characteristic of Parametric Equivalence Scales (PES) is that they are based on «discretionary» choices. Equivalence scales are difficult to construct because household utility cannot be directly measured, which results in economic identification problems.

Applications of equivalence scales include measurement of social welfare, economic inequality, poverty, and costs of children; indexing payments for social benefits, life insurance, alimony, and. Household equivalence scales measure the economic size of households of any composition in terms of some standard unit.

Our equivalence scale for time sim ilarly starts with time spent in paid labour, adjusting that in the light of household structure. Equivalence scales for income are purely descriptive, at least.

about how best to estimate equivalence scales (or even if it is possible to estimate equivalence scales-see Nicholson, ; Pollak and Wales, ; Blundell and Lewbel, ). Yet, scales are essential to the design, implementation and evalua- tion of almost all tax and transfer policies-scales, at least implicitly, are in use every day.
