Abstract

Spatial effects have been mainly neglected in the regional inequality literature. Little attention has been paid to the relationship between inequality and spatial autocorrelation and to the sensitivity of the inequality measures to the choice of spatial scale. This paper tries to address these issues analyzing regional income inequality in Italy, over the period 1981- 2008, mainly through a spatial decomposition of the Gini coefficient.
