FIGUEIREDO, Erik Alencar de; SILVA, Cleiton Roberto da Fonseca  and  REGO, Herbert de Oliveira. Desigualdade de oportunidades no Brasil: efeitos diretos e indiretos. Econ. Apl. [online]. 2012, vol.16, n.2, pp.237-254. ISSN 1413-8050.

The aim of this study is to measure the inequality of opportunities in Brazil. For this purpose, we use the theoretical approach developed by Pistoles i (2009) and an empirical strategy based on combining the method of counterfactual generation by Chemozhukov, Femández-Val e Melly (2009). The results indicate that the proportion of inequality of opportunity in total Brazilian inequality is 35%.
