“Distributional impact analysis” is a term used by economists to describe the assessment of the impact of interventions on different groups in society. Interventions may have different effects on individuals according to their characteristics, such as income level or geographic location. These could be intended or unintended consequences of pursuing a particular policy direction. The resulting impact on inequality could be either positive (progressive) or negative (regressive).
