MPIA-11086 The impacts of income transfer programs on income distribution and poverty in Brazil: An integrated microsimulation and computable general equilibrium analysis

Abstract

This research intends to analyze the effects of the Governmental income transfer programs on poverty and personal income distribution in Brazil. More specifically, we intend to evaluate in which extent these programs are being efficient in achieving their purposes of alleviating poverty and reducing the inequality in income distribution in the country. Besides that, after evaluating the referred impacts of current programs, by simulating the effects of alternative designs and focus for these programs we intend to generate proposals that can be used as inputs to improve the income transfer programs in achieving their purposes in a more strong and effective way.
