Income stratification and between-group inequality

Paul Allanson (Lead / Corresponding author)

    Research output: Working paper

    Abstract

    The paper demonstrates that the ratio of the Yitzhaki (1994) to the conventional measure of between-group inequality is in general equal to one minus twice the weighted average probability that a random member of a richer (on average) group is poorer than a random member of a poorer (on average) group, and may therefore be interpreted as an index of stratification in its own right.
