Bounds of the Gini Index Using Sparse Information on Mean Incomes
Review of Income and Wealth, 2003, vol. 49, issue 3, 415-423
In this paper, bounds of the Gini index, based on grouped data, are proposed assuming sparse information on mean incomes in the sense that data on either the overall mean income or some of the group mean incomes are not reported. It turns out that the proposed bounds are identical to those proposed by other authors that have more stringent information requirements with respect to mean incomes.
