Abstract Measures of inequality suffer from the lack of an immediate interpretation which clarifies how significant any observed change in inequality might be. This paper addresses this problem by introducing a hypothetical tax/transfer intervention which redistributes a constant amount of income so as to make the value of a rank-dependent inequality measure for a specific distribution of income equal to the inequality for some other distribution.
