A New Functional Form for Estimating Lorenz Curves
There are several functional forms for estimating Lorenz curves from grouped data. Based on studies of the Spanish distribution of income, the authors propose a new functional form which provides very good fits. Their specification contains the Pareto Lorenz curve as a particular case, and allows one to compute easily, with the provided formulae, the Gini, Kakwani, and Chakravarty inequality indexes. Coauthors are G. Martin, A. Fernandez, M. Ladoux, and A. Garcia. Copyright 1991 by The International Association for Research in Income and Wealth.
