    Gini coefficient - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia



    Gini indices for the United States at various times, according to the US Census Bureau:[7][8][9]

    1929: 45.0 (estimated)
    1947: 37.6 (estimated)
    1967: 39.7 (first year reported)
    1968: 38.6 (lowest index reported)
    1970: 39.4
    1980: 40.3
    1990: 42.8
    (Recalculations made in 1992 added a significant upward shift for later values)
    2000: 46.2
    2005: 46.9
    2006: 47.0 (highest index reported)
    2007: 46.3
    2008: 46.69
    2009: 46.8





    Note the pattern?

    Yes...I notice a pattern of your pure, unadulterated jealousy of wealthy people.

    Why do you refuse any of the information I have attempted to give you?

    I refuse to legitimize any of your unvarnished covetousness and greed, no matter how you flimsily attempt to conceal it.

    Who cares?

    does a wealthy person having more money than you make you poorer?

    Mexicoes numbers went the other way, and look what kind of shit hole that place is.

    I don't deny that you're a dumber-than-dirt hack, who would grasp at any straw in attempt to conceal your avarice.
