SVYGEI_SVYATK: Stata module to derive the sampling variances of Generalized Entropy and Atkinson inequality indices when estimated from complex survey data
-svygei- and -svyatk- are programs to estimate Generalized Entropy and Atkinson inequality indices, together with their sampling variances. Sampling variances are calculated using a linearization method proposed by Woodruff (JASA, 1971). The program may also be used to calculate sampling variances in the case where there are i.i.d. observations.
