The potential shortcomings of the regression (or stochastic) approach for computing exact standard errors of the Gini coefficient using ordinary least squares or weighted least squares are pointed out. 
A Cautionary Note on Estimating the Standard Error of the Gini Index of Inequality
We will show that the regression approach to estimating the standard error of the Gini index can produce incorrect results as it does not account for the correlations introduced in the error termsExpand

Additional properties of a linear pen's parade for individual data using the stochastic approach to the Gini index
Abstract The stochastic approach to the Gini index is used to derive new properties of a linear Pen's parade for individual data. With small sample adjustments, the reference value of the Gini indexExpand
Statistical Inference for Testing Gini Coefficients: An Application for Colombia
This paper uses Colombian household survey data collected over the 1984-2005 period to estimate Gini coefficients and their corresponding standard errors. We find a statistically significant increaseExpand
A Convenient Method of Decomposing the Gini Index by Population Subgroups
Abstract We propose a convenient method of estimating the within-group, between-group, and interaction components of the overall traditional Gini index from the estimated parameters of underlyingExpand
A simple non-parametric estimator of the Gini index
Search for simple reliable estimators of the Gini index has lead to numerous publications. Most of these papers focus on the bias and the standard error of the estimator of the Gini index. In thisExpand
A note on the asymptotic equivalence of jackknife and linearization variance estimation for the Gini coefficient
The Gini coefficient (Gini 1914) has proved valuable as a measure of income inequality. In cross-sectional studies of the Gini coefficient, information about the accuracy of its estimates is crucial.Expand
Reliable inference for the GINI Index Russell Davidson
Although attention has been given to obtaining reliable standard errors for the plugin estimator of the Gini index, all standard errors suggested until now are either complicated or quite unreliable.Expand

U-Statistics and Their Asymptotic Results for Some Inequality and Poverty Measures
U-statistics form a general class of statistics that have certain important features in common. This class arises as a generalization of the sample mean and the sample variance, and typically membersExpand
