Title:Does relative income matter for the very poor? Evidence from rural ethiopia PDF Logo
Authors:Akay, Alpaslan

Series/Report no.:IZA discussion papers 3812
Abstract:We studied whether relative income has an impact on subjective well-being among extremely poor people. Contrary to the findings in developed countries, where relative income has shown a significant and negative impact on subjective well-being, we cannot reject the hypothesis that relative income has no impact on subjective well-being in rural areas of northern Ethiopia.
Subjects:Absolute income
relative income
