Abstract

The generalized entropy class of inequality indices is derived for Generalized Beta of the
Second Kind (GB2) income distributions, thereby providing a full range of top-sensitive and bottom-sensitive measures. An examination of British income inequality in 1994/95 and 2004/05 illustrates the analysis.
