About this product
- DescriptionA comprehensive account of ecomic size distributions around the world and throughout the years In the course of the past 100 years, ecomists and applied statisticians have developed a remarkably diverse variety of income distribution models, yet single resource convincingly accounts for all of these models, analyzing their strengths and weaknesses, similarities and differences. Statistical Size Distributions in Ecomics and Actuarial Sciences is the first collection to systematically investigate a wide variety of parametric models that deal with income, wealth, and related tions. Christian Kleiber and Samuel Kotz survey, compliment, compare, and unify all of the disparate models of income distribution, highlighting at times a lack of coordination between them that can result in unnecessary duplication. Considering models from eight languages and all continents, the authors discuss the social and ecomic implications of each as well as distributions of size of loss in actuarial applications. Specific models covered include:* Pareto distributions* Logrmal distributions* Gamma-type size distributions* Beta-type size distributions* Miscellaneous size distributions Three appendices provide brief biographies of some of the leading players along with the basic properties of each of the distributions. Actuaries, ecomists, market researchers, social scientists, and physicists interested in ecophysics will find Statistical Size Distributions in Ecomics and Actuarial Sciences to be a truly one-of-a-kind addition to the professional literature.
