20 p, 217.1 KB Polarisation and health / Blanco-Perez, Cristina (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona) ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
This paper examines the effect of income polarisation on individual health. We argue that polarisation captures much better the social tension and conflict that underlie some of the pathways linking income disparities and individual health, and which have been traditionally proxied by inequality.

This paper provides a longitudinal perspective on changes in Spanish male earnings inequality for the period 1993-2000, by decomposing the earnings covariance structure into its permanent and transitory parts. [...]

51 p, 669.6 KB On the measurement of polarisation : a questionnaire study / Amiel, Yoram (Ruppin Academic Center) ; Cowell, Frank ; Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
Starting from the axiomatisation of polarisation contained in Esteban and Ray (1994) and Chakravarty and Majumdar (2001) we investigate whether people's perceptions of income polarisation is consistent with the key axioms. [...]

Economic theory and empirical evidence clearly show that social exclusion dimensions are inter-related. Notwithstanding that, dimensions are usually assumed independent from one another in the economics literature. [...]

44 p, 330.8 KB Using efficiency analysis to measure individual well-being with an illustration for Catalonia / Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada)
This paper shows how distance functions, a tool typically employed in production economics to measure the distance between a set of inputs and a set of outputs, can be employed to approximate a composite measure encompassing the many dimensions of well-being. [...]

22 p, 251.2 KB Subjective income expectations and income risk / Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Schluter, Christian (University of Southampton)
In the context of income dynamics, we investigate whether aspects of agents' superior information relative to the econometrician's limited information are captured in subjective expectations data. It is natural, for instance, to assume that the econometrician cannot observe idiosyncratic shocks to both permanent and transitory components of income. [...]

29 p, 115.5 KB Inequality aversion and risk attitudes / Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Ferrer-i-Carbonell, Ada (Institut d'Anàlisi Econòmica)
Using self reported measures of life satisfaction and risk attitudes, we empirically test whether there is a relationship between individuals inequality and risk aversion. The empirical analysis uses the German SOEP household panel for the years 1997 to 2007 to conclude that the negative effect of inequality measured by the sample gini coefficient by year and federal state is larger for those individuals who report to be less willing to take risks. [...]

43 p, 448.2 KB Empirical approaches to inequality of opportunity : principles, measures, and evidence / Ramos Morilla, Xavier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada) ; Van de Gaer, Dirk
We put together the different conceptual issues involved in measuring inequality of opportunity, discuss how these concepts have been translated into computable measures,and point out the problems and choices researchers face when implementing these measures. [...]

165 p, 2.3 MB Institutional Persistence and Economic Performance in the long-run / López Velásquez, Francisco José ; Kyriacou, Andreas, dir. ; Ramos, Xavier ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada
Esta tesis es un esfuerzo para obtener una mejor comprensión sobre las causas y mecanismos que explican la persistencia institucional. Aunque varios estudios de sección-cruzada relacionan la persistencia institucional a las condiciones iniciales, y por medio de estas, a los equilibrios que dichas situaciones primigenias crearon, hasta el momento, ningún trabajo ha vinculado firmemente la asociación entre la longevidad o duración de una institución como manifestación de su persistencia. [...]
This thesis is an attempt to gain a better understanding of the causes and mechanisms explaining institutional persistence. So far, three main mechanisms appear to shape the persistence of an institution: geography, culture and history. [...]
