Finds: The results of Atkinson inequality index are also consistent Gini index result, with this difference, with increasing in inequality aversion parameter, the Atkinson inequality index increases. This means that if policy makers will have efficient targeting subsidies, should be income transfers more from high-income to low-income groups done.
