concstats: Market Structure, Concentration and Inequality Measures

Based on individual market shares of all participants in a market or space or their respective sales figures, the package offers a set of different structural and concentration measures frequently - and not so frequently - used in research and in practice. Measures can be calculated in groups or individually. The calculated measure or the resulting vector in table format should help practitioners make more informed decisions. Methods used in this package are from: 1. Chang, E. J., Guerra, S. M., de Souza Penaloza, R. A. & Tabak, B. M. (2005) "Banking concentration: the Brazilian case". 2. Cobham, A. and A. Summer (2013).
