Abstract

This paper, following earlier work on the measurement of inequality when only ordinal information is available, proposes an axiomatic derivation of a new class of inequality‐sensitive and additive achievement measures. Use is then made of these indices to study health achievement in Europe, using information on self‐assessed health in 30 countries, based on the European Health Interview Survey (wave 2).
