The Lorenz curve is widely used as a convenient graphical device to represent the size distribution of income and wealth. In the present paper the concept of the Lorenz curve has been extended and generalized to study the relationships among the distributions of different economic variables. Some theorems have been proved which have a large number of economic applications.
