I'm comparing two Gini results from two distributions of income, in which one income is a source of the other. Let, say that Gini_1 = 0,770 and Gini_2 = 0,373. Clearly, Gini_2 shows a less inequal income distribution than Gini_1. However, what more can we say about that? I'm expecting to find an answer such as this one:
What does an increase of 5 Gini points mean substantively? In a two-person cake sharing game, an increase of 5 Gini points means that the person receiving the smaller slice at t would receive two and a half percent less cake at t+1.
This was paraphrased from:
- Subramanian, S. 2002. “An Elementary Interpretation of the Gini Inequality Index.” Theory and Decision, 52: 375–379.
(Does anyone have a digital copy of this reference?)
