Subject:   Entropy Measures of Inequality

I am not sure if this is the proper place to ask these questions, but any help would be appreciated.

First, is there a macro available (or is it within the program) for a generalized entropy measure of inequality. I was able to find the coefficient of variation in proc means, but I would like to use Theil's index, Atkinson's index, as well as form my own additive index. (I have a Gini measure, but it is not decomposable)

Second, is there a searchable bank of macros. I have located several homepages with a couple dozen macros, but I was hoping to find a giant deposit to solve all my future problems. Does SAS, one of the SAS user groups, or anyone maintain a large deposit like this.

Thanks in advance,

Greg Stutes University of Kansas
