An ethnic group or ethnicity is a category of people who identify with each other, usually on the basis of presumed similarities such as common language, ancestry, history, society, culture, nation or social treatment within their residing area. Ethnicity is often used synonymously with the term nation, particularly in cases of ethnic nationalism, and is separate from but related to the. Income inequality in the United States grew significantly beginning in the early s, after several decades of stability. The US consistently exhibits higher rates of income inequality than most developed nations, arguably due to the nation's relatively less regulated markets.

In empirical studies of the size distribution of incomes, a question is often encountered which concerns the extent to which inequality in the total population is a consequence of income differences between population subgroups classified by characteristics such as age, gender, race, educational level or Cited by: The latter are measures that account for the degree of income inequality within a given population of economic units (called here intra-income inequality ratios) while the former is intended to Author: Michele Costa.

We look specifically at the key patterns of inequality observed across different population subgroups and geographic areas. Finally, we touch briefly on the consequences of inequality, policy interventions that may address the persistent disparities between population subgroups, and future directions for : Mark Mather, Beth Jarosz.

However, the complex interrelation of social, economic, and political determinants of undernutrition results in substantial inequalities between population subgroups.

This is especially observed in Latin American countries where health inequalities are still treated as a major concern [ 10 ].Cited by: 1. Therefore decomposition by population subgroups is considered a highly desired property of inequality indices.

This paper presents the class of decomposable indices for ordinal data. 1 Health surveys in which individuals are asked to choose their health status out of several options are an example of ordinal data that are frequently used in Cited by: The Latino population is no exception.

The high rate of population expansion among Latinos is due primarily to fertility and secondarily to immigration. InLatinos comprised only % of the US population; inthey comprised %, in %, in %, and at this writing they comprise over 15%.Cited by: Measuring poverty within and between population subgroups.

and population subgroups is recent. It started with economists and policy analysts wishing to assess the contribution of inequality within and among different subgroups of the population to overall inequality (Bourguignon ; Cowell ; Shorrocks, ).

Since then various studies have used decomposition methodologies. Although the national infant mortality rate has decreased over the years to about 7 per 1, the rate among African-American infants is nearly twice as high, 14 per 1, and that among American Indians is per 1, whereas it is per 1, among whites (NCHS, ).

The State of inequality: reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health report delivers both promising and disappointing messages about the situation in low- and middle-income countries. On the one hand, within-country inequalities have narrowed, with a tendency for national improvements driven by faster improvements in disadvantaged subgroups.

Among various possible forms of individual contributions to the Gini found in the literature, we show that only one form satisfies a set of desirable properties.

This form can be used for decomposing the Gini into population subgroups. An empirical Cited by: 3. On the other hand, when analyzing the spatial decomposition of inequality, it is usual to express global inequality as a weighted sum of inequality values calculated for population subgroups (within component) plus the contribution arising out of differences among Cited by: 2.

The purpose of this research is to introduce a new approach to the decomposition of the Gini ratio into three components, supporting them with economic and statistical rigorous interpretations.

Canadian Journal of Economics – Google Cited by: Health and wealth have always been closely related (Wilkinson, ), and economically disadvantaged racial/ethnic minority populations in the United States experience worse health status on multiple indicators of physical health (Williams, in press).

The existence of inequality—a property of the population in question—thus has important consequences for the health of individuals and by: 5. This analysis is quite revealing for understanding and explaining income idfferences among certain population subgroups with apparent policy implications.

The degree to which overall inequality is attributable to inequality between these sub groups or to inequality within them is investigated, employing a decomposition analysis by population subgroups. In contrast, a health inequity, or health disparity, is a specific type of health inequality that denotes an unjust difference in health.

By one common definition, when health differences are preventable and unnecessary, allowing them to persist is unjust (13).Cited by: Global Wealth Inequality. The world’s richest 1 percent, those with more than $1 million, own 45 percent of the world’s wealth. Adults with less than $10, in wealth make up 64 percent of the world’s population but hold less than 2 percent of global wealth.

9 Distribution and Dynamics. This chapter provides techniques required to measure and analyse inequality among the poor (section ), to describe changes over time using repeated cross-sectional data (section ), to understand changes across dynamic subgroups (section ) and to measure chronic multidimensional poverty (section ).

As it is shown in Fig. 2, in differences between social classes accounted for more than one fifth of overall earnings inequality, and for 16% of income both cases, the between component of inequality decreased in the following decade, reaching a minimum in The relevance of social class in structuring economic inequalities was rapidly diminishing during the by: Economic Inequality Among Racial and Ethnic Groups THIRTY-FOUR YEARS AGO the signing of the Civil Rights Act of set the Nation on a course toward racial equality.

Inequality refers to the observed differences in coverage between different population subgroups. Measuring and monitoring these inequalitiesCited by: 1.

Health inequalities are differentials in disease distribution among subgroups or between different social locations that exist within a population. Yet the most salient cause of health inequality is social stratification which only varies between populations.

This mismatch of levels of analysis has confused efforts by researchers committed to Author: Alicia R. Riley. Immunization is one of the most cost-effective health intervention to halt the spread of childhood diseases, and improve child health.

Yet, there is a substantial disparity in childhood immunization coverage. The overall objective of the study is to investigate the trends of within-country inequalities in childhood immunization coverage among children aged 12–23 months in Kenya, Cited by: 1.

Inequalities in risk exposure in housing and urban environments exist in all Member States, and a study conducted by WHO/Europe indicates that low prevalence of certain environmental exposures within the total population may hide stark inequalities in exposure between different population subgroups.

Health inequalities are among the main. stratification of subgroups contributes to overall inequality by decomposing the Gini index into between-group inequality, within-group inequality, and a term capturing the degree of subgroup stratification.

Section 2 applies our stratification measure and decomposition procedure to income inequality in. and to assess disparity in poverty across population subgroups.

We demonstrate the applicability of our approach through two contrasting inter-temporal illustrations using Demographic Health Survey (DHS) datasets for Haiti and India. Keywords: Inequality decomposition, Inequality among the poor, Multidimensional poverty.

In particular, it defines the concepts of within and between inequality and analyses how different inequality indexes perform with respect to this decomposition.
