Step 1

Income distribution defines the two-parameter model for the Lorenz Curve which shows the cumulative percentage of national income held by the bottom % of the population. The L(x) curve gives the graphical representation of the distribution of income and thus depicts income in equality present in an economy.

Step 2

The equation (1) gives income distribution function of estimated L(X) for the year 1996.

And equation (2) gives the income distribution in 2000.

Step 3

To calculate Gini coefficient that gives the inequ...
