Abstract

In this paper, we suggest an alternative way to calculate the concentration index and a new matrix form approach, which can be applied both to the Gini and to the concentration index. For both indices, this approach yields expressions that are decomposable by groups and easily comparable. Our findings are illustrated by applying them to the Atkinson Plotnick Kakwani (APK) reranking measure
