Try ineqerr.ado which I think is also better.  inequal.ado, for the Gini at
least,  does not provide correct results if there are zeros, or very small
income values (if I recall correctly), so I have stopped using it.


"In my opinion, true love is expressed in reserve, modesty
and even shyness of the lover toward his idol, and never
in temperamental excesses or too premature intimacy.
When you invoke your Creole temperament, then I
consider it my duty to step in between your temperament
and my daughter with my healthy  common sense. If you
are unable to show your love for her in the form
consonant with the London latitude, then it is advisable
that you love her from a distance."
Karl Marx in a letter to Paul Lafargue (Marx's daughter's fiance), 13 August

Subject: st: Gini index with pweights

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?
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).
