Concentration of Multivariate Statistical Tables

Publikation: Working/Discussion PaperWU Working Paper


In this paper we lay the foundation of the concentration measurement for statistical tables with more than two columns. A concentration function and a coefficient of concentration are defined which can be used in a similar way as the Lorenz diagram and the Gini coefficient in case of tables with two columns. For computational purposes we derive an explicit formula and give an algorithm. The mathematics behind our approach is formally equivalent to the statistical theory of the comparison of experiments.
