|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,
