An Economic Analysis of Personal Earnings in Rawalpindi City
The intent of this paper is to delineate the determinants of the distribution of income in Rawalpindi city. The basic hypothesis to be tested is that for each individual, personal earnings are a function of his socio-economic characteristics such as age, sex, education, and the like. If the hypothesis bears out, the disparity of incomes within the city would then prove to be a consequence of the variation in these individual characteristics. It would then be of interest to quantify the effect of each of these determinants on the eventual distribution of income.
