Abstract
When a distribution can be described either in terms of attainment or in terms of shortfall, the classical inequality measures appear to be one-sided. I show that it is possible to find indicators which simultaneously measure attainment and shortfall inequality. I derive one indicator belonging to the Gini family, and another belonging to Coefficient of Variation family. I also indicate how they are connected to other measures.
