completed Project

Using the household income and expenditure Surveys gathered by ERF from the different national statistical agencies, this paper tries to examine and quantify inequality of opportunity arising from the inequitable distribution of access to basic services, such as electricity, water, sanitation, and education, by measuring the Human Opportunity lndex (HOl) for a number of countries across several years. This project makes use of World Bank advances in the measurement of equality of opportunity when it comes to access to services.
