Similarly, an equal-invariant measure probably has to be an absolute form since, if it is a relative form, the corresponding absolute inequality increases when all incomes increase by the same amount, an unlikely property for a measure of inequality. The polar properties of intensiveness and equal-invariance combine in three polar ways. IS The synthetic measures of inequality have an intensive relative form and an equal-invariant absolute form. They are the measures whose absolute form is linearly homogeneous in income deviations from the mean (the relative form is homogenous of degree zero in the relative deviations from the mean).
