We analyze the income and environmental inequalities and their interrelation by means of both the multidimensional poverty measurement and the Gini index decomposition. We stress how overlap between the two dimensions plays a relevant role and allows powerful insights on the contribution of the environmental dimensions to poverty. Our finding underlines that bad environmental conditions are more likely among low-income units and represent a relevant inequality factor.

Abstract

We analyze the income and environmental inequalities and their interrelation by means of both the multidimensional poverty measurement and the Gini index decomposition. We stress how overlap between the two dimensions plays a relevant role and allows powerful insights on the contribution of the environmental dimensions to poverty. Our finding underlines that bad environmental conditions are more likely among low-income units and represent a relevant inequality factor.
