Abstract

The report concerns the distributional aspects of environmental indices. The logistical transformation function is proposed to fit the subjectively defined index. It follows that the density of the distribution of the index belongs to a Johnson S(B) system. The statistical consequences resulting from the form of the distribution of the index are discussed.
