The Measurement of Inequality and Well-Being: New Perspectives

Editor: Satya R. Chakravarty, Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata

Abstract: The theory of distributional analysis has recently witnessed the growth of several new branches and new results in traditional measurement problems. Some of these new branches are measurement of multidimensional inequality and poverty, measurement of polarization, measurement of vulnerability and health inequality measurement. New developments include inverse stochastic dominance, unit constancy, measuring chronic poverty, measuring inequality and poverty when needs differ and path independence. In order to make the frontiers of research in these areas more advanced, this special issue of the journal invites contributions on related topics.
