This is the code used in Brewer, Joyce, Waters, and Woods, "A method for decomposing the impact of reforms on the long-run income distribution, with an application to universal credit". Please see "ReplicationMendeley.txt" for further information. This paper uses Special Licence Understanding Society and British Household Panel Survey data, available from the UK Data Service. Specifically, the following study numbers are required: -6931 -6666 -7248 -6027 -6136 Because these data are special licence, they have not been deposited in Mendeley. The authors are able to provide information on how the data can be accessed by other researchers. These calculations also require TAXBEN, the IFS tax and benefit microsimulation model. Since that is proprietary, it has not been deposited in Mendeley. However, the authors will seek to supply an an output file from TAXBEN simulations if a researcher has access to all five datasets listed above, conditional on the UKDS and Understanding Society team being satisfied that doing so is consistent with maintaining data confidentiality.
