Hi Kerry,

Martin Bieuwen discusses a 'difference in means test for unbalanced panel data' and applies it to all generalized entropy indices.

See Biewen, Martin, 2001, Bootstraph Inference for Inequality, Mobility and Poverty Measurement, mimeo University of Heidelberg.

This paper can be found on the internet. It most likely was published as welll, but I do not know where and when.

Hello, I'm using ineqerr to calculate inequality indices (e.g.
Theil) with bootstrap standard errors and confidence intervals, and I
want to determine if changes from one year to another are
significantly different from 0. How would I perform such a test? Or
is there a way I can bootstrap the difference of two Theil measures? Thank you!
