Deal all,
I would like to estimate the Gini index with sampling weights pweight.

Inequal.ado allows only fweights to be used; ineqdeco.ado allows fweights
and aweights.

How can I do it?
Thanks
Francesca Modena
============

You do not say whether you are interested in the point estimate of the Gini
index, or the estimated standard error as well. If just the former, then
-ineqdeco- will do fine. Simply declare your pweights as aweights.

If you are also interested in standard errors, -svylorenz- on SSC will
provide them (derived using linearization methods).
