The available evidence suggests the percent measure should not be used to study inequality: Reply to Norton and Ariely
Kimmo Eriksson and
Judgment and Decision Making, 2013, vol. 8, issue 3, 395-396
In this reply, we reiterate the main point of our 2012 paper, which was that the measure of inequality used by Norton and Ariely (2011) was too difficult for it to yield meaningful results. We describe additional evidence for this conclusion, and we also challenge the conclusion that political differences in perceived and desired inequality are small.
