migration.gini.exchange | R Documentation |

The Exchange Gini Index "indicates the contribution to spatial focusing represented by the *n(n-q)* net interchanges in the system":

*G^T_{RC, CR} = \frac{∑_i ∑_{j \neq i} | M_{ij} - M_{ji} | }{ (2n(n-1)-1) ∑_i ∑_{j \neq i} M_{ij}}*

This implementation solves the above formula by simply substracting the transposed matrix's values from the original one at one go.

`m` |
migration matrix |

A number between 0 and 1 where 0 means no spatial focusing and 1 shows maximum focusing.
