Menhinick's Index Formula

A diversity index is a quantitative measure that reflects how many different types there are in a dataset, and simultaneously takes into account how evenly the basic entities are distributed among those types. Given here is the Menhinick's Index Formula written as S / √(n), where S: the total number of identified groups and N: the total number of counted individuals.

Menhinicks Diversity Index Formula


M = S / √(n)


M = Menhinicks Diversity Index
S = Number of Species Recorded
N = Total Number of Individuals in the Sample
