Abstract

This paper investigates income and population biases in the distribution of aid and decomposes recipients by geographic region. Previous analyses aggregate recipients and assume biases have an equal impact. Results demonstrate that while a bias towards middle-income and medium-sized countries persists in the full-sample, the extent of such biases differ significantly by region.
