INEQDEC0: Stata module to calculate inequality indices with decomposition by subgroup

Listed author(s):
  • Stephen P. Jenkins


    (London School of Economics)

ineqdec0 is a stripped-down version of ineqdeco (q.v.). Unlike the latter, it will provide estimates using samples containing zero or negative values for the variable of interest. But as a result the portfolio of indices estimated is reduced to the p90:p10 ratio, GE(2) = half the squared coefficient of variation, and the Gini coefficient, and Sen's welfare index. (The other indices estimated by ineqdeco are not defined for zero and negative values of the variable of interest.) This version is for Stata versions 8.2 onwards. For versions 5 to 8.1, use ineqdeco5 instead.
