The Gini coefficient requires you to construct a Lorenz curve that would look like this: A Then you have to determine what fraction of the triangle is made up of area A. Fraction of population.

A Lorenz curve plots the cumulative percentages of total income received against the cumulative number of recipients, starting with the poorest individual or household. The Gini index measures the area between the Lorenz curve and a hypothetical line of absolute equality, expressed as a percentage of the maximum area under the line. LORENZ CURVES AND GINI INDEX 3 Calculating G. Examples. To get an idea of the nature of the Gini index G, let’s start with a model population of people with a total wealth of $ Example 1. Suppose 20 people have $5 each. Draw the Lorenz curve and calculate G. Since 80% of the population has zero wealth, L(x) = 0, 0 ≤ x ≤ File Size: 51KB.

As is well known, the use of the Gini coefficient in comparisons is inconsistent with an utilitarian approach. This paper analyzes the Gini coefficient's normative significance in welfare comparisons evaluating income distributions according to Yaari dual social welfare function. When generalized Lorenz curves cross once, the Gini coefficient is decisive in determining welfare Cited by: LORENZ CURVES AND GINI COEFFICIENTS LEARNING OBJECTIVES In this project you will: • draw Lorenz curves and interpret the Gini coefficient • calculate and interpret alternative measures of income inequality • research other dimensions of inequality and how they are measured. Key concepts • Concepts needed for this project: ratio and decile.

The Gini coefficient is calculated as the ratio of the area that lies between the straight degree line and the Lorenz curve (marked Area A in Figure ) over the total area over the straight degree line (marked Areas A and B).

The information in the Lorenz curve is often summarized in a single measure called the Gini index, which is defined as follows. Let A be the area of the region between y = x and y = L (x) (see figure) and let B be the area of the region between y = L (x) and the x-axis. Then the Gini index is. Show that.

Compute the Gini index for the. Plotted as a Lorenz curve, complete equality would be a straight diagonal line with a slope of 1 (the area between this curve and itself is 0, so the Gini coefficient is 0).Author: Will Kenton.

The Lorenz Curve and the Gini Coefficient. The Lorenz Curve can be used to calculate the Gini coefficient – another measure of inequality.

The Gini coefficient is area A/A+B. The closer the Lorenz curve is to the line of equality, the smaller area A is. And the Gini coefficient will be low. Contd. It is defined as a ratio and can range from 0 and 1 (0% to %) The Gini index is the Gini coefficient expressed as a percentage.

Gini index = gini coefficient * Calculation The Ginicoefficient is calculated as a ratio of areas on the Lorenz curve diagram. for Gini coefficient to be an unbiased estimate of the true population value /5(2).

If [math]y = L(x)[/math] is the equation of a Lorentz curve, then the inequality in the corresponding distribution of wealth is measured by the Gini index, which is given by the formula: Gini index [math]= 2 \displaystyle\int_0^1 [x - L(x)] dx[/m.

Theorem 1. Suppose G is the Gini index associated with the Lorenz curve L(p) and. the share density is deﬁned by s(p) = L (p)almost everywhere. Let p be the expected. value of the random variable on [0,1] whose density function is s(p).Cited by: Intuitively, the further away the Lorenz curve is from the perfect equality line, the more unequal the income distribution is, and the higher the Gini coefficient will be.

Using a Gini coefficient calculator, calculate the Gini coefficient for each of your Lorenz curves. You should have four coefficients in total. Enter new data into the spreadsheet. You can add as many points in the line as you want as long as you include at least (0,0) and (,).

family income. 3 Lorenz curves. The Lorenz curve is a graphical representation of the cumulative income distribution. It shows for the bottom p1% of households, what percentage p2% of the total income they have. The percentage of households is plotted on the x−axis, the percentage of income on the y− Size: KB.

The Gini index is twice the area between the Lorenz curve and the curve of perfect by: The Gini coefficient is the ratio of the area between the line of perfect equality and the observed Lorenz curve to the area between the line of perfect equality and the line of perfect inequality.

The higher the coefficient, the more unequal the distribution is. Sometimes the entire Lorenz curve is not known, and only values at certain intervals are given.

In that case, the Gini coefficient can be approximated by using various techniques for interpolating the missing values of the Lorenz curve. If (X k, Yk) are the known points on the Lorenz curve File Size: KB. Published on An explanation of Lorenz curve and Gini index, which describe or measure how equal a quantity (like income) is distributed among a population.

The explanation is done with. Those theoretical concepts, including inference purposes as well as the absolute Lorenz curves (i.e. the generalized Lorenz curve) are presented in the first part of the book (Chapters ).

Using Lorenz curves, the Gini coefficient is defined as the ratio of the area between the diagonal and the Lorenz curve and the area of the whole triangle under the diagonal.
