Income Elasticity

The functional relationship among the changes in the quantity demanded for a good or service and the change in income of those persons demanding the good or service. If the demand for good raise as a person's income rises then the good is said to be "normal." If the demand for good decreases as a person's income rises then the good is said to be "inferior."
