Measuring relative equality of concentration between different income / wealth distributions

  title={Measuring relative equality of concentration between different income / wealth distributions},
  author={Quentin L. Burrell},
In a recent paper Burrell (2005a) introduced two new measures both based on the Gini mean difference for measuring the similarity of concentration of productivity between different informetric distributions. The first was derived from Dagum’s (1987) notion of relative economic affluence (REA); the second – in some ways analogous to the correlation coefficient – is a new approach giving the so-called co-concentration coefficient (C-CC). Models and methods adopted in the field of informetrics… CONTINUE READING
