The Gini-Type Functions: An Alternative Derivation
AbstractThe purpose of this note is to propose an alternative and intuitively simpler derivation of the Gini coefficient (in Section 1), to show how it can be generalized and how then a number of coefficients (concentration coefficient, Kakwani's progressivity index) are obtained directly from this generalization (Section 2), and finally to use this approach to obtain some Gini relationships (Section 3).
