TITLE
      'SVYGEI_SVYATK': module to derive the sampling variances of
Generalized Entropy and Atkinson inequality indices when estimated from
complex survey data

DESCRIPTION/AUTHOR(S)

      -svygei- and -svyatk- are programs to estimate Generalized
      Entropy  and Atkinson inequality indices, together with their
      sampling variances. Sampling variances are calculated using a
      linearization method proposed by Woodruff (JASA, 1971). The
      programs may also be  used to calculate sampling variances in the
      case where there are i.i.d. observations.

These programs were discussed at the latest UK Stata User Group meeting.
