Hi all,

I've been attempting to decompose the Gini coefficient of a measure A, 
(where 
A=B+C+D) using sgini command. Gini coefficient of component B is 1.046. I 
have 
two questions related to this: first, how can I interpret this coefficient. 
Second: as A has some values that are negative, how does this affect the 
interpretation of the Gini coefficient? 
Any insight and/or advice would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance
Antonella Tantari
