Abstract: Given a flow $ {\theta _g},g \in G$ a group, over a probability space $ (\Omega ,\mathfrak{F},P)$ and a $ G$-valued random variable $ Z$, we exhibit the Lebesgue decomposition of the measure $ P \circ \theta _Z^{ - 1}$ relative to $ P$, and give necessary and sufficient conditions for equality $ (P \circ \theta _Z^{ - 1} = P)$, absolute continuity $ (P \circ \theta _Z^{ - 1} \ll P)$, and singularity $ (P \circ \theta _Z^{ - 1} \bot P)$ in terms of the Haar measure. The proof rests on the theory of ``Palm measures'' as developed by Mecke and the authors. Specializing the group $ G$, we retrieve some known results for the integers and real line, and compute the Radon-Nikodým derivatives in various cases.
