Statistical Analysis of Health Inequalities

The rineq package provides functions to calculate the relative, generalized, and Erreygers corrected concentration index; plot Lorenz curves; and decompose health inequalities using (generalized) linear models, and survival models.

Available functions

Concentration index | Function | Description | |——————–|————————————————————————————-| | ci | Calculate the relative, generalized, or Erreygers corrected concentration index | | correct_sign | Correct negative values in the health variable | | contribution | Decompose the Relative Concentration Index into its components |
