Author
  • Philippe Van Kerm
Physical Description
  • code
Notes
  • This ado computes a series of inequality measures of the variable varname. It is a slightly revised version of inequal published by Edward Whitehouse in STB-23. The inequality measures computed are: the "relative mean deviation", the "coefficient of variation", the "standard deviation of logs", the"Gini index", the "Mehran index", the "Piesch index", the "Kakwani index", "Theil entropy index", the "mean log deviation" and the "generalised entropy measure" with sensitivity parameter (-1) [see, e.g., Coulter [1989] for a definition of these measures]. Four changes have been made compared to inequal: (1) inclusion of the "generalised entropy measure" with sensitivity parameter (-1); (2) acceptance of aweights; (3) inclusion of saved results in global macros; and (4) with weighted data, ranks are computed differently.
