Income Inequality in Pakistan. An Analysis of Existing Evidence
To study the consequences of an economic change on income distribution we rank distributions of income at different points in time and quantify the degree of income inequalities. Changes in income distribution can be ascertained either through drawing the Lorenz curves or through estimating different inequality indices, such as Gini Coefficient, coefficient of variation, standard deviation of logs of incomes, Theil's Index and Atkinson's Index
