Income-Factor Polarization: A Methodological Approach

Abstract : We here propose a novel method for the analysis of the distribution of two sources of income across the population. The polarization curve for each income source is defined and compared to the Zero-polarization Curve. The latter provides a benchmark of zero inequality in income composition. We then illustrate the method via an empirical application to the case of Italy.
