Measures of Deprivation and their Meaning in Terms of Social Satisfaction

Theory and Decision 47 (1):89-100 (1999)

Abstract
This paper proposes relative and absolute measures of deprivation using social satisfaction functions. The relative measure gives us the amount by which social satisfaction can be increased in proportional terms by redistributing incomes equally. We also demonstrate the existence of a relationship between summary indices of deprivation and social satisfaction.
