Relative Deprivation and Deprivation Theory
Over the last several decades increases in the income inequality in the United States have been well-documented. Yet, this assessment of growing prosperity for some but downslide for others is based on a specific interpretation of the concept "inequality. The proposed measure draws from the social science literature on poverty and improves upon an earlier measure, RD. Using data from the General Social Survey, I analyze the relationship between the proposed and earlier measures of relative deprivation, and two outcome variables: 1 self-rated health, and 2 happiness. While the measures produce similar results in predicting self-rated health, the proposed measure is a better predictor of happiness than the earlier measure. I conclude that the empirical and theoretical advantages of the proposed index make it an improved measure of relative deprivation.
