Title Injury and loss concentration by sinkings in fishing fleets
Bibliographic information Feb. 2009, Vol.47, No.2, p.277-284. Illus. 48 ref.
Abstract The objectives of this study were to formulate a methodology for analyzing sinking accidents in the fishing sector of a country, and to apply this methodology to the Spanish fishing fleet. Thus, two indices are constructed by region and type of fishing, for two variables, fishermen and vessels. Results are obtained both for the concentration of accidents and the associated Lorenz curves. An increase in the inequality in the spatial and functional distribution of these accidents is verified.
