Economics - The Gini coefficient

The Gini coefficient

Another method of measuring the degree of equality/inequality in the
distribution of income and wealth is to calculate the Gini coefficient. It
is a ratio of the area between the line of absolute equality and the Lorenz
curve to the total area below the line of absolute equality.
