Abstract


This study presents the concentration of rural Taluk population using probabilistic model. Taluk size Distribution and the concentration of rural population in the Taluk are related. Taluk sizes are increased in both ways, population and area. Pareto and Exponential probabilistic model were used to describe the Taluk size Distribution. Gini's concentration ratio and Pietra index were used to study the amount of concentration of rural population. This study includes all Taluks of Tamil Nadu and their population as per 2011 census for an empirical analysis. As per this study, the concentration of the rural male population in the rural Taluk area is less than the concentration of the rural female population and the Exponential model is more suitable than the Pareto model for the study of variability in Taluk size Distribution using Gini's concentration ratio and Pietra index.

Author Keywords: Exponential Model, Gini's coefficient, Lorenz Curve, Maximum Likelihood Estimation, Pareto model, Pietra Index.
