Microcomputers and the efficient estimation techniques proposed by Kloek and Van Dijk [8] make practically all models an alternative option today. 1 The Log-logistic Model Income Density Function Camilo Dagum [4] of the University of Ottawa drew attention to this model when he used it to analyze the income distribution of Canada and several subregions of the country. The fits were surprisingly good for a two-parameter model. In a later study, Terukazu Suruga [12] of Osaka University showed how the log-logistic fit better than the lognormal, Gamma, and Beta distributions for a time series of Japanese income distributions.

2. 2 shows how the fit looks. Cumulative Distribution Function It is easily verified by differentiation that the CDF for the Singh-Maddala is given by: F(y) ¼ 1 À (1 þ a1 ya2 )Àa3 : If we let p ¼ F (y), then the inverse of the CDF can be expressed as: y¼ 8h i 1 9a1 2 > 1 a3 < 1Àp = À1> > : a1 > ; : Example 4 Use the Singh-Maddala model to find the income at the 20th percentile for male full-time year-round workers.
