The author lays out formal definitions of seven fragmentation and polarization indices, discusses different approaches to measuring “cultural distance” between ethnic groups, and provides an overview of indices usage in the works devoted to studying relationship between ethnic heterogeneity and xenophobia, civil conflicts, human well-being and quality of governance.
