  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita; PERAGINE, Vito (2004)
    Social exclusion manifests itself in the lack of an individual’s access to functionings as compared to other members of society. Thus, the concept is closely related to deprivation. We view deprivation as having two basic ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (2005)
    We introduce and axiomatize a one-parameter class of individual deprivation measures. Motivated by a suggestion of Runciman, we modify Yitzhaki’s index by multiplying it by a function that is interpreted as measuring the ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita; LA FERRARA, Eliana (Université de Montréal, Département de sciences économiques, 2008-01)
    The goal of this paper is to contribute to the economic literature on ethnic and cultural diversity by proposing a new index that is informationally richer and more flexible than the commonly used ‘ethno-linguistic ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; CERIANI, Lidia; CHAKRAVARTY, Satya R.; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (2012-06)
    Individual well-being is multidimensional and various aspects of the quality of life need to be jointly considered in its measurement. The axiomatic literature on the subject has proposed many indices of multidimensional ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (Université de Montréal, Département de sciences économiques, 2009-03)
    We provide a systematic treatment of the notion of economic insecurity, assuming that an individual’s sentiment of insecurity depends on the current wealth level and its variations experienced in the past. We think of ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; CHAKRAVARTY, Satya R.; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (Université de Montréal, Département de sciences économiques, 2009-08)
    We examine the measurement of multidimensional poverty and material deprivation following the counting approach. In contrast to earlier contributions, dimensions of well-being are not forced to be equally important but ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (2012-12)
    We propose and characterize a generalization of the classical linear index of individual deprivation based on income shortfalls. Unlike the original measure, our class allows for increases in the income of a higher-income ...
  • BOSSERT, Walter; D'AMBROSIO, Conchita (2004)
    We provide an axiomatization of Yitzhaki’s index of individual deprivation. Our result differs from an earlier characterization due to Ebert and Moyes in the way the reference group of an individual is represented in the ...
