Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to offer a characterization of a welfare index which depends positively on total income and negatively on Theil's first inequality measure. This welfare index belongs to a family of indicators which try to link measures of income and measures of welfare (real-income indices). El objeto de este trabajo consiste en la caracterización de una medida de bienestar que depende positivamente del nivel de renta total y negativamente del primer índice de Theil. Esta medida pertenece a una familia de índices de bienestar que se formulan en términos de indicadores de "renta real", expresión que alude al propósito explícito de utilizar medidas de renta como indicadores de bienestar.
