The properties of various forms of Engel functions satisfying the additivity criterion are investigated. It is suggested that a form of relationship used by H. Working, but recently neglected, offers on balance great advantages. A logical generalisation of it yields a flexible function from which a good fit may be expected for most commodity groups.
