Jini

Pronounced "gee-nee." A Java-based distributed computing environment originally from Sun in which devices plugged into the network automatically offer their services. Jini creates a "network dialtone" allowing, for example, a laptop to be plugged in and immediately use printers and other resources. It turns "peripherals into services," so that when a disk drive is plugged in, it becomes a storage service rather than just a drive. Jini was taken over by Apache and became the Apache River project. See JavaSpaces and zero configuration.

The independent variables were: the GINI coefficient, the economic growth rate, and the unemployment rate.
It is important also to note, however, that the Gini coefficients, (calculated with data from household surveys), for several Latin American countries are in the range of 45-55 percent, quite high by international standards.
The Gini Index: Table 1 reveals the value of the Gini coefficient when using state per capita personal incomes to estimate a Lorenz curve for the 50 states.
When [delta] = 2, the following formula is the original Gini formula:
2000) proposed measurement of educational Gini index.
Therefore the Gini Coefficient must be between zero and one because the equation tells us that perfect equality would give a coefficient of zero, and perfect inequality would give a coefficient of one.
Game outcomes (coded as previously described and hereafter called WIN) were regressed on the team's Gini ratio (GINI) and the natural logarithm of average team salary (lnSALARY).

These portfolios are natural extensions of the classic Lorenz curve and associated Gini index that we review in the following.
The statistic that they used to gauge income inequality was the Gini coefficient, which measures income distribution: a Gini coefficient of zero stands for perfect equality, whereas a Gini coefficient of 1 (or 100 percent) stands for maximum inequality.
Interest in the determinants of income inequality, most commonly measured as the Gini index, has been sparked by a trend towards greater inequality in most of the advanced economies since about 1970 (Alderson and Nielsen, 2002; Atkinson, 2004).
