2 The Lorenz curve Evergreen after 100 years Barry C. 1 Introduction In 1905, Max Lorenz proposed a simple graphical means to summarize the inequality of wealth in a finite population of individuals. Known subsequently as the Lorenz curve, it has survived well and indeed still occupies a preeminent place in discussion of the quantification of inequality. It was a simple, but a very good, idea. Subsequent investigations have provided useful interpretations of why it does so well in capturing our conceptions of what really constitutes inequality.

Iii) The Kakwani index, K, defined to be the length of the Lorenz curve. It is evident that all three measures, G, P and K, respect the Lorenz order. 4) The Lorenz curve 19 (in order to obtain a measure whose values range from 0 to 1, Kakwani (1980) actually proposed using (K − √2)/(2 − √2) as an inequality measure). But in fact any Schur convex function can be used as a summary Α measure of inequality by applying it to the vector (x1/ Α n i=1 n Α xi, x2/ n i=1 Α xi, n . , xn/ i = 1 xi). In particular, separable convex functions of the form i=1 g(xi) where g is convex are often utilized.
