Abstract

In this paper we attempt to make a compilation of several concentration and stability indexes used in the literature since 1945, showing that while the Hirschman-Herfindahl index and concentration ratio are most commonly used, there are also alternative measures. Likewise, we present two applications in Excel to calculate the different indexes that were identified in the literature. En este documento se pretende elaborar una compilación de diversos índices de concentración y estabilidad utilizados en la literatura desde 1945, mostrando que si bien el índice de Hirschman-Herfindhal y el ratio de concentración han sido los más utilizados en diversos análisis de Organización Industrial, existen medidas alternativas. En segunda medida, se presentan dos aplicaciones en Excel para el cálculo de los distintos índices encontrados en la literatura.
