Events with lower probabilities provide more surprises. To calculate the degree of surprise caused by all messages, the entropy index is defined as the sum of each information content weighted with each probability (H(x) = ∑ i x i log(1/x i )). As the probability of an event approaches zero, x i log(1 / x i ) is set to zero in the customary manner as it approaches its limit (Theil 1967). The index takes values between 0 and log(n). The index takes a maximum value when all events emerge with the same probability: that is, the index measures equality.
