Abstract: En este trabajo se abordan las tres metodologías propuestas en la literatura para evaluar la desigualdad en el bienestar a nivel mundial concebido como un proceso multidimensional. Para ello se considera el Índice de Desarrollo Humano (IDH), que ...

In this work inequality in well-being in the world, as a multidimensional process, is assessed under three different approaches. To that end, we consider the Human Development Index, which measures well-being in terms of income, health and education, for the period 1980-2011. As a starting point, we propose a dimension-bydimension approach which reveals that the three dimensions have reduced their inequality over the study period although different patterns are concluded. Using unidimensional and multidimensional generalized entropy measures, we conclude that inequality in well-being has been remarkably reduced in the last decades. Decomposition of these measures in two components, between regions and within regions, which are determined by UNDP, has also been calculated. The results point out that the fall of inequality is mainly due to the decrease of within component
