st: Question about standard errors for inequality measures
I am having problems trying to calculate standard errors for inequality measures
(Gini coefficient, Thail, etc.) Anybody has done this before? I have tried to
use bstrap but I cannot get it to work!
At the end of the day, I need to do hypothesis testing about changes on
inequality before and after some simulation procedure. To do so, I need to do a
hypothesis testing similar to that of testing if Y_bar is different from X_bar.
In my case, however, instead of averages I intend to use inequality measures
which are not independent. (i.e. I cannot assume that the covariance between
my inequality measures is zero - because they come from the same income
distribution before and after I simulate a change due to a given policy).
I would greatly appreciate I somebody could help me with this matter,
