Estimation of inequality indices from survey data, allowing for design effects
Martin Biewen and I have derived the sampling variances of Generalized Entropy and Atkinson indices for the case they are estimated from survey data with a complex design. This talk illustrates how the indices may calculated in Stata, using our commands -svyatk- and -svygei-. The empirical illustrations compare income inequality in Britain and Germany.
