The main goal of this work is to estimate general equivalence scales for six biological types of households. The estimation was made using Engel’s method. In this method the share of food is used as an indirect indicator of welfare of the households. Equivalence scales were defined using data from 1993-2000. Besides, other approaches to estimating equivalence scales and some generalizations of Engel’s method were presented.
