Dear all,

With thanks to Kit Baum, -progres-, a new package by Andreas Peichl and
Philippe van Kerm, is available from the SSC Archive.

-progres- is a module for assessing the distributive effects of an income
tax. progres takes unit-record data on pre-tax and post-tax income and
computes several classic measures of (net) redistributive effects,
progressivity, vertical equity and reranking (horizontal inequity). All
indices are derived from (generalized) Gini coefficients of inequality and
(generalized) concentration coefficients.

To install the package from within Stata, type

 . ssc install progres

-progres- is compatible with Stata 8.2 or newer.


Comments on this program are very welcome,

Cheers,
Andreas
