Abstract

The authors use the European Union-wide tax–benefit model, EUROMOD,to establish baseline rates of relative poverty in 1998 for each of the MemberStates and then explore their sensitivity to (a) an increase in unemployment,(b) real income growth and (c) an increase in earnings inequality. They findthat poverty rates are sensitive to such ‘macro-level’ changes but that thesize—and in some cases the direction—of the effect varies across countries. Ifsuch indicators are to be used in judging the effectiveness of social policies, it isimportant that differences in responsiveness are fully understood.
