To have a measure of aggregate welfare, we use the sum of individual utilities or, equivalently, the expected utility that an agent would obtain if she or 36 See Fern´andez and Rogerson (2001a) for evidence. 1. Steady-state comparisons of local vs. 105 he were to receive a random draw from the equilibrium income distribution. 37 To provide a measure of welfare change at time t that is unaffected by monotone transformations of the utility function, we examine the proportion by which the income distribution in the steady state of the local regime would have to be changed so that it provided the same aggregate welfare as the state system in period t.

Note that this condition reflects the fact that under a state-financed system, unlike in the local system, the relative price of a unit of education (in terms of forgone consumption) is not the same across individuals. Lower-income individuals face a lower price than higher-income individuals.
