 This study proposes methods for measuring inequalities in the distribution of health workers in a country by adapting techniques from the economics literature on income inequality to the measurement of health workforce distribution across geographical units. Calculations use three indices: the Theil L measure and the Theil T index (both of which are decomposable) and the Gini coefficient G which, though not decomposable, is the most well-known and extensively computed measure of inequality.
