Non-Hierarchical Bivariate Decomposition of Theil Indexes

Kam Ki Tang () and Dennis Petrie ()

No WP032007, CEPA Working Papers Series from University of Queensland, School of Economics

Abstract: This paper develops a method to conduct non-hierarchical bivariate decomposition of Theil indexes. The method has the merits that, first, it treats all variates symmetrically and therefore facilitates the comparison of inequalities associated with different variates; and, second, it highlights the interaction between variates in the creation of inequality. The method is applied to measure gender and ethnic income inequality in Australia.
