Two more ways of spelling Gini Coefficient with Applications
In this paper, we draw attention to a promising yet slightly underestimated measure of variability - the Gini coefficient. We describe two new ways of defining and interpreting this parameter. Using our new representations, we compute the Gini index for a few probability distributions and describe it in more detail for the negative binomial distribution. We also suggest the latter as a tool to measure overdispersion in epidemiology.
