Coefficient of variation and Power Pen's parade computation
AbstractUnder the the assumption that income y is a power function of its rank among n individuals, we approximate the coefficient of variation and gini index as functions of the power degree of the Pen's parade. Reciprocally, for a given coefficient of variation or gini index, we propose the analytic expression of the degree of the power Pen's parade; we can then compute the Pen's parade.
