Restricted Lorenz dominance of economic inequality in one and many dimensions

  • Karl Mosler

    ()

The paper investigates Lorenz dominance and generalized Lorenz dominance to compare distributions of economic status in one and several attributes. Restrictions of these dominance relations are developed that focus on central parts of the distributions and facilitate their comparison. Copyright Kluwer Academic Publishers 2004
