This paper proposes to measure the mobility of a stochastic process as the expected value of a "mobility functional" with respect to its stationary distribution. The mobility functional thereby measures the valuation of movements between states. We not only highlight the conceptual advantages of our approach, but also show how this so-called "equilibrium mobility index" relates to the axiomatic approach by Fields and Ok (7) and the approach based on monotone transition matrices by Conlisk (4) and Dardanoni (5))
