|Title:||Transfer principles and a classification of concentration measures||Authors:||EGGHE, Leo
|Issue Date:||1991||Publisher:||JOHN WILEY & SONS INC||Source:||JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR INFORMATION SCIENCE, 42(7). p. 479-489||Abstract:||In this article we show that the notion of concentration (or inequality) can best be studied by applying a number of transfer principles. We prove this by showing that transfer principles imply other natural concentration requirements such as the principle of nominal increase. We moreover exhibit a relation between Dalton's transfer principle and the Lorenz dominance order. We distinguish between simple and stronger transfer principles, leading to a classification of concentration measures. Finally, it is shown that the coefficient of variation and some measures derived from it are the "ultimate best" ones.||Notes:||UNIV INSTELLING ANTWERP,SPECIALE LICENTIE DOCUMENTATIEEN BIBLIOTHEEKWETENSCHAP,B-2610 WILRIJK,BELGIUM.
