''Socioeconomic Inequalities in Childhood Undernutrition in India An Application of the Corrected Concentration Index ''
( 2010, Vol. 30 No.1 )
 
 
Measuring inequalities in child undernourishment with the help of the most popular concentration index (CI) has its own limitation in valuation and comparison. This is an attempt at contrasting a set of improved inequality measures against the conventional CI to comment on their robustness. In the process, it raises a need for revisiting the attainment-inequality relationship in health outcomes
 
 
Keywords: health Inequality, concentration index
