Description

Duncan's segregation index is one-group form of dissimilarity index DIDuncan and measures the unevenness of a group distribution compared to the rest of the population. It can be interpreted as the share of the group that would have to move to achieve an even distribution compared to the rest of the population.

Usage

1
ISDuncan (x)

Arguments

x

- an object of class matrix (or which can be coerced to that class), where each column represents the distribution of a group within spatial units. The number of columns should be greater than 1 (at least 2 groups are required). You should not include a column with total population, because this will be interpreted as a group.

Value

a numeric vector with values of the Duncan's segregation index for each group
