dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to discuss a method of calculating the Gini Coefficient of Inequality, with particular reference to the Kenyan data. This method is simple, precise and straightforward, and is free of ambiguities that beset the other conventional method. Moreover, it can be readily applied to a series of data that cover a long period of time. As such, the method can be used to analyse readily the extent to which inequality is increasing or decreasing over time in the country or region.en_GB
