SVYLORENZ: Stata module to derive distribution-free variance estimates from complex survey data, of quantile group shares of a total, cumulative quantile group shares
Abstractsvylorenz computes distribution-free variance estimates for quantile group shares of a total, cumulative quantile group shares, and the Gini coefficient, when estimated from complex survey data. Note that the Gini coefficient is calculated using all observations; it is not derived by approximation from the income shares. svylorenz may also be used to draw Lorenz curves (but see also glcurve).
