DESCOGINI: Stata module to perform Gini decomposition by income source
This command decomposes the Gini coefficient by income source using the approach described in Lerman and Yitzhaki (1985) and in Stark, Taylor and Yitzhaki (1986). This approach allows the calculation of the impact that a marginal change in a particular income source will have on inequality. Bootstrapped standard errors of the estimated impacts on inequality can easily be obtained using this command.
