Application of Dagum economic distances to the analysis of wage distributions in Poland
MetadataShow full item record
Studies in the field of wage and income distribution concentrate on measuring income inequality. We can investigate both the inequality within the population and the inequality between the populations. The latter can be called the economic distance of one population with respect to another. In the paper we present economic distance ratios. Do and D1 introduced by Dagum. They were calculated for the empirical distributions of wages in Poland (nonparametric form) and for the corresponding theoretical ones derived from the Dagum function (parametric form).
