What I mean is this: Do leagues with lower Gini coefficients see more variety in teams making the playoffs over a series of seasons?Matt Lovelandhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/04731643979404574245noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2252859739698347082.post-70008317868794252692013-09-25T22:16:07.232-05:002013-09-25T22:16:07.232-05:00Ernesto,

Order the totals from lowest to highest and then compare the resulting cumulative curve with the line that would result from equal totals of that metric. The ratio of the area under the actual curve to the area under the theoretical "equal" line is the Gini coefficient.Stevehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01132360506118969585noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2252859739698347082.post-86646467239565104582013-08-25T17:19:27.374-05:002013-08-25T17:19:27.374-05:00I'm interested in calculating the GINI index b...I'm interested in calculating the GINI index but for pure competing balance. Therefore, this is the stuff that always counts (regardless of money income/wealth).<br /><br />Give me some ideas for this.Ernesto Gonzálezhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03272351903752874524noreply@blogger.com
