for Pakistan, rural and urban sectors, as well as for the four provinces for 1979 and 1984-85 are presented in the next sub-section.
It advances upon Beach and Davidson (1983) by deriving the full (asymptotic) joint variance - covariance structure for marginal changes in the ordinates of Lorenz and generalized Lorenz curves
Ranking Distributions with Generalized Lorenz Curves
Table 1 gives the estimated coefficients of the Lorenz curves
for the 14 countries of this study.
v] be respectively the Lorenz curves
corresponding to the set of shares [s.
Changes in income distribution can be ascertained either through drawing the Lorenz curves
or through estimating different inequality indices, such as Gird Coefficient, coefficient of variation, standard deviation of logs of incomes, Theil's Index and Atkinson's Index.
Welfare economics uses Lorenz curves
to display skewed income distributions and Gini indices to summarize the skewness.
Different approaches for refining the ranking of income distributions in cases where the Lorenz curves
intersect are described in several papers.
show the cumulative frequency of firms ranked according to their low-wage density.
may be presumed to follow a particular parametric form and fit to the data.
Service-sector Lorenz curves
are located in Panels A and C of Figure 7.
These results are illustrated by Lorenz curves
and underpinned by developments in functional income distribution.
