Poverty measures and the generalized Lorenz curve for grouped data
Dissertation (M.A.) - University of Warwick, 1988.
As an example, we apply our method to the publicly available grouped data of the National Survey of Family Income and Expenditure in Japan. The test accepts the null hypothesis that income distribution in Japan improved from to 2. Generalized Lorenz dominance Generalized Lorenz curves. Let X be a positive random variable.

Quantile Function and Generalized Lorenz Curve Generalized Lorenz Curve Growth Incidence Curves Growth Rate of Lower Partial Mean Income General Mean Growth Curves Lorenz Curve Poverty Incidence Curve and Headcount Ratio Poverty Deficit Curve and the Poverty Gap Measure In recent years, especially since the mid s, there have been debates and commentaries exploring the concept, types, sizes and economic implications of income inequalities. This study carried out a quantitative measure of the size and the core determinant of income inequality in Nigeria. The study used standard traditional measurement approach: the Lorenz Curve and Gini Co .

Grouped data depicts sparse points of the Lorenz curve and hence, to estimate inequality measures, it is essential to de ne a method to link such points. Much of the academic literature on the estimation of income inequality from grouped data deploy nonparametric techniques to approximate the shape of the Lorenz curve.
While various discrete poverty measures can be applied directly to data in this limited form, they typically require an arbitrary approach to within-group interpolation. This problem can be overcome by fitting either a parametric income distribution or a Lorenz curve to the grouped data and computing the required quantities from estimated Cited by: 9.
The primary aim of this paper is to show how can we construct poverty measures from grouped data, that is, to show how can we derive poverty measures from parameterized Lorenz curve. The most common data source on income distribution in China is grouped data. When income data is in grouped form, some acceptable Lorenz model is needed to approximate the underlying Lorenz curve.
inequality and poverty measures implied by the chosen Lorenz model. The outline of the paper is as follows.
Section 2 presents the mathematical structure of the Lorenz curve and explains the parameterization process based on the general quadratic model. The section also includes a discussion of the normative underpinnings of Lorenz dominance.
Lorenz curves and associated measures of poverty and inequality. To this end, we use (i) household survey data from four countries (China, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Vietnam), (ii) data drawn from several theoretical distributions (Weibull, Pareto, Log-normal and Generalized Beta II) with parameter values assigned on the basis of previous empirical.

The estimation of poverty and inequality often requires the use of grouped data as complete household surveys are neither always available to researchers nor easy to analyze. This study assesses the performance of two functional forms for the Lorenz curve proposed by Kakwani () and Villasenor and Arnold ().

In this study we assess the performance of functional forms proposed by Kakwani (a) and Villasenor and Arnold() to estimate the Lorenz curve from grouped data.
A graph of the data may be used directly as a Lorenz curve, or economists and statisticians may fit a curve that represents a continuous function to fill in any gaps in the observed data.
Details. Lc(x) computes the empirical ordinary Lorenz curve of x as well as the generalized Lorenz curve (= ordinary Lorenz curve * mean(x)).
The result can be interpreted like this: p* percent have L(p)* percent of x. If n is changed to anything but the default x is interpreted as a vector of class means and n as a vector of class frequencies: in this case Lc will compute the minimal.
The Lorenz curves employed by the World Bank are the general quadratic (Villasenor and Arnold, ) and the beta Lorenz curve (Kakwani, ).
We have chosen the beta distribution as an alternative to Lorenz curve estimation for calculating poverty measures because (a) use of a distribution. Unfortunately, Lorenz and generalized Lorenz curves may cross, in which case, Atkinson's and Shorrock's theorems do not apply.
Distributions whose Lorenz curves cross require a specific social welfare function to determine which has higher social welfare because different values of e (≠ 0) can generate different social welfare rankings.
Fig. illustrates for the standard Lorenz curve. The Lorenz curve, introduced more than years ago, remains as one of the main tools for analysis of inequality. International institutions such as the World Bank collect and publish grouped income data in the form of population and income shares for a large number of countries.
