Summary of "Relationship between concentration ratio and Herfindahl-Hirschman index: A re-examination based on majorization theory."

While the two most widely used measures of market (industrial) concentration, the -firm concentration ratio and the Herfindahl-Hirschman index , have no precise functional relationship, they can be related by means of boundary formulations. Such bounds and potential relationships, which have been considered in some earlier reported studies, are being re-examined, corrected, and reformulated in this paper. The underlying analysis uses a different approach based on majorization theory and the results are supported by computer simulation. Such boundary relationships make it possible to determine approximate values of from those of and vice versa for any given set of market shares. Much more accurate predictions of -values can be obtained with knowledge of the individual market shares of the largest firms within a market (industry), with or without knowledge of the total number of firms.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The ratio of two odds. The exposure-odds ratio for case control data is the ratio of the odds in favor of exposure among cases to the odds in favor of exposure among noncases. The disease-odds ratio for a cohort or cross section is the ratio of the odds in favor of disease among the exposed to the odds in favor of disease among the unexposed. The prevalence-odds ratio refers to an odds ratio derived cross-sectionally from studies of prevalent cases.

An indicator of body density as determined by the relationship of BODY WEIGHT to BODY HEIGHT. BMI=weight (kg)/height squared (m2). BMI correlates with body fat (ADIPOSE TISSUE). Their relationship varies with age and gender. For adults, BMI falls into these categories: below 18.5 (underweight); 18.5-24.9 (normal); 25.0-29.9 (overweight); 30.0 and above (obese). (National Center for Health Statistics, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

Measurement of the index of refraction (the ratio of the velocity of light or other radiation in the first of two media to its velocity in the second as it passes from one into the other).

The inspection of one's own body, usually for signs of disease (e.g., BREAST SELF-EXAMINATION, testicular self-examination).

The ratio of the dose that produces toxicity to the dose that produces a clinically desired or effective response.
