Abstract: DAD is designed to facilitate the analysis and the comparisons of social welfare, inequality, poverty and equity across distributions of living standards and using disaggregated data. It is made available at no charge. DAD's features include the estimation of a large number of indices and curves that are useful for distributive comparisons as well as the provision of various statistical tools. It is currently the only software that systematically takes into account the sampling design of commonly used surveys in calculating asymptotic, bootstrap and p-bootstrap statistics for carrying out statistical inference. Many of DAD's features are useful for estimating the impact of programs (and reforms to these programs) on poverty and equity.
