Inequality: Issues and Indices

P.K. Chaubey (Author)
Synopsis Inequality has always evoked interest among a variety of scholars. It will continue to do so as its existence challenges our notion of equity, justice and fairness. Even those who find it infeasible to do anything about inequalities feel that they should have the idea about the level of inequality across units/groups/aggregates/societies/communities as also over time. That requires measurement, which is not all that easy. There are a good number of measures and they all do not place different units in a unique order. They are product of responses to different perspectives. Scholars working in the area should be able to appreciate the nuances behind them. This book deals with the matter of measurement in a systematic and gradual manner. The treatment of the subject is wholesome so that even a beginner would not find it difficult to tread the path. There have been included some chapters on background material. The book has been addressed to the Indian audience and the audiences similarly placed. Students, researchers and teachers would alike find it immensely useful.
