Abstract : There has been considerable public discussion of whether families of the same size and income should receive higher transfer payments from the federal government if they live in higher cost areas. The purpose of the paper is to derive the necessary and sufficient conditions for two extreme answers to the question under the assumptions of a specific Paretian welfare economics model. (Author)
