On a Class of Additively Decomposable Inequality Measures
AbstractThis paper considers a wide class of inequality indices and identifies those which are additively decomposable. The sub-class of mean independent, additively decomposable measures turns out to be a single parameter family which includes the squared coefficient of variation and the two Theil's entropy formulas.
