Description :
The empirical models presented here show that the interurban variation in income inequality can be explained by two factors : the level of urban development and variations in the urban characteristics of family and industrial structure. A decomposition of 1979 and 1989 cross-sectional models reveal that while changes in urban family and industrial characteristics have been sources of rising inequality, there has been significant structural change in the urban models acting to decrease inequality.
