Abstract

Evidences from nonparametric and semiparametric unbalanced panel data models with fixed effects show that Kuznet's inverted-U relationship is confirmed when economic development reaches a threshold. The model tests justify semiparametric specification. The integrated net contribution of control variables to inequality reduction is significant. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
