st: simulating poverty by changing mean income
I have lorenz parameters for an income measure for
various groups in a household survey dataset and would
like simulate poverty levels (FGT measures) by
substituting various means for the actual mean.
Does anyone know of a way to do this (that doesn't
require starting at the very beginning, trying to
derive a general quadratic equation for the lorenz, &
then undertaking a lot of mathematical gymnastics)?
I'd be grateful for any suggestions.
Thanks very much.
