Abstract

This paper proposes, for ordinal variables, and index of asymmetry based on the cumulative and retrocumulative frequencies. The paper shows that this new index has a connection with the bipolar mean, recently introduced by Maffenini and Zenga(2006). An application to a real case is presented to show how the asymmetry index works
