ALVAREZ, Beatriz. La desigualdad de la riqueza en Tucumán entre 1869 y 1884: Una aproximación a su medición a partir de los inventarios post mortem. Poblac. soc. [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.2, pp.107-144. ISSN 1852-8562.

The objective of this work is to estimate wealth distribution in Tucumán between 1869 and 1884 by using probate inventories, which are available in the Archivo Histórico de la Provincia de Tucumán (AHT). A methodology to expand the sample to total population for correcting sample biases is proposed. The empirical strategy consists of using occupation distribution by geographical location in 1869 census to assign weights that remove or at least reduce sample biases. The obtained characterization will be useful to check the image of Tucumán in this period as a place of economical well-being, documented in travelers and statistics notes.

Keywords : Inequality; Wealth; Probate inventories.
