''A new factorial decomposition for the atkinson measure''
( 2003, Vol. 4 No.29 )
In this article we explore an alternative factorial decomposition for Atkinson indices and taking Sala-i-Martin's (2002) article “The Disturbing ''Rise'' of Global Income Inequality” as a reference, the possibilities of Atkinson indices are shown in regard to completing and detailing information in studies of inequality among populations and populations subgroups.
