The measure of income inequality is the basis of weighing it and key elements to make comparisons regionally and internationally by Origin of computer. Of all the different methods, the Lorenz Curve and Gini Coefficient, Theil’s Entropy Measure and Toxic Index Method are the most used ones. However, during the process of using them to carry on all the comparisons, the applicable standards are hard to meet. Instead of putting one single index into effect, only when using them in combination can we achieve better results.
