This paper proposes a new measure of income mobility in the form of re-ranking which occurs in the move from an initial income distribution to a final income distribution. The re-ranking measure is based on Zenga’s new index and concentration curve. The measure summarizing the overall re-ranking is expressed as the average of various point re-ranking measures calculated across the income distribution.

Abstract

This paper proposes a new measure of income mobility in the form of re-ranking which occurs in the move from an initial income distribution to a final income distribution. The re-ranking measure is based on Zenga’s new index and concentration curve. The measure summarizing the overall re-ranking is expressed as the average of various point re-ranking measures calculated across the income distribution.
