Ethnic gaps and ethnic ratios
Alexander, W Robert J
In the December 2000 issue of Political Science Gould argues that the method chosen by Te Puni Kokiri for measuring ethnic ‘gaps’ leads serious distortion. Gould claims that his alternative, a ratio of percentages, is conceptually superior. It fact, it is not at all clear what such a ‘ratio of ratios’ means, nor are changes in it easy to interpret.
