Abstract:
The paper explained the widely employed Lorenz curve for measuring income inequality in general and thus used for measuring income inequality for Mizoram in particular. The paper examined six models/equations for fitting the income share of deciles using SPSS software, and considered the Cubic model as the best fit for the Mizoram data).
