Hi Experts,
Currently I am working on analyzing household income diversity from several income sources such as crops, cattle, forest, etc. I found that Herfindahl-Hirschman index and Simpson Index are commonly used to measure income diversity. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these two indexes? Could you suggest me any other methods which are more appropriate to measure such a diversity?
Thank you.
Question
Hi experts,
I have household income data which suffers issue of non-normal distribution. Then, I transformed this data using natural logarithm to deal with this issue. Could you give me suggestion which income data should I use (initial data or transformed data) if I want to classify the household income data into four household income groups (quartile analysis). FYI, I will use these 4 income groups in the regression analysis as explanatory variables to see its relationship with income diversity.
