Programming Language



clorenz can produces the following distributional curves for a given list of variables: Lorenz curves "L(p)", Generalised Lorenz curves "GL(p)", Concentration curves "C(p)", Generalised concentartion curves "GC(P)", Deficit share curves "p-L(p)" or "p-C(p)". Linear interpolation is used to estimate these distributional curves for a given percentile (p). Coordinates of curves can be listed or saved in a new Stata file.
