CEBALLOS MINA, Owen Eli; HERNANDEZ MOTA, José Luis  and  ROSAS GUZMAN, Mario Alejandro. Redistributive effects from social expenditure components in Mexico, 2008-2020. Inv. Econ [online]. 2023, vol.82, n.323, pp.80-104.  Epub May 12, 2023. ISSN 0185-1667.

We analyze the effects of social expenditure components on income distribution in Mexico using a panel of the 32 states. A model of determinants is specified to explains the Gini coefficient behavior by means of social spending, poverty, and growth. We use a dynamic panel and the Arellano-Bond estimator for the period 2008-2020 and show that public expenditures on education and health have effects on reducing inequality that are greater than the effects of conditional transfers and spending on basic services.

Keywords : Human capital; public spending; inequality; dynamic models; C52; E62; H31; H52; I38.
