N Per capita GNI and 10 year growth rate (from assignment 1) Income distribution in quintiles (you should have 5 rows of data) 3. Gini coefficient or index. 4. % of population below the absolute poverty line. (Choose PPP\$ 1.90) for your country. 5. A measure of the poverty gap for the poverty line above. Use the data collected and additional data as needed to answer the following questions. 1. Plot the Lorenz curve for both countries on the same graph. Be sure to label each axis and all the points on the graph. 2. What does the poverty gap tell us in addition to the headcount percentage of poverty? References: Data on Poverty and income distribution is available in the World Development Indicators database. Since the availability of this data varies extensively by country, you may have to search from the 1990s to get this data. Make sure you increase the precision of your data to include up to two decimal places - poverty in some countries may be low. Additional Income distribution data can be found on PovcalNet at http://iresearch.worldbank.org/PovcalNet/index.htm?2 Or at http://www.wider.unu.edu/research/Database/en_GB/database/
