Hi Nick,

Thank you for your reply.

I might have misrepresented my data here. 

I have data on per capita flood premium paid and percapita income for each county (144 counties) and year (1978-2010). I am trying to determine progressivity by examining the departure from proportionality using lorenz and concentration curve. I believe there must be some program in stata for this kind of analysis.

Thank you for your help 
Ajita
