Gini Coefficient

Published by at 7:22 pm under

A numerical measure of the level of income inequality in a nation. Measures the ratio of the area between the line of equality (the 45 degree line) and a nation’s Lorenz Curve to the total area below the line of equality. The closer the coefficient is to one, the more unequal a nation’s income distribution. The closer to zero, the more equal the nation’s income is distributed.
