On the generalization and decomposition of the Bonferroni Index

Abstract:

A simple algorithm is proposed which defines the Bonferroni index as the product of a row vector of individual population shares, a linear mathematical operator called the Bonferroni matrix and a column vector of income shares. This algorithm greatly simplifies the decomposition of the Bonferroni index by income sources or classes and population subgroups. The proposed algorithm also links the Bonferroni index to the concepts of relative deprivation and social welfare and leads to a genera...
