Estimating Lorenz and concentration curves
Abstract. Lorenz and concentration curves are widely used tools in inequality research.
In this article, I present a new command, lorenz, that estimates Lorenz
and concentration curves from individual-level data and, optionally, displays
the results in a graph. The lorenz command supports relative,
generalized, absolute, unnormalized, custom-normalized Lorenz, and
concentration curves. It also provides tools for computing contrasts between
different subpopulations or outcome variables. lorenz fully supports
variance estimation for complex samples.
