## Gini index for the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution with user-defined scale and shape parameters

### Description

Calculates the Gini index for the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution with scale parameter b and shape parameters g (shape.g) and s (shape.s).

### Usage

gburr(
scale = 1,
shape.g = 1,
shape.s = 1
)


### Arguments

 scale A positive real number specifying the scale parameter b of the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution. The default value is scale = 1. shape.g A positive real number specifying the shape parameter g of the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution. The default value is shape.g = 1. shape.s A positive real number specifying the shape parameter s of the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution. The default value is shape.s = 1.

### Details

The Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution with scale parameter b, shape parameters g (argument shape.g) and s (argument shape.s) and denoted as BurrXII(b,g,s), where b>0, g>0 and s>0, has a probability density function given by (Kleiber and Kotz, 2003; Johnson et al., 1995; Rodriguez, 1977; Yee, 2022)

f(y) = \displaystyle \frac{gs}{b}\left(\frac{y}{b}\right)^{g-1}\left[1 + \left(\frac{y}{b}\right)^{g}\right]^{-(s+1)},

and a cumulative distribution function given by

F(y)=1-\left[1 + \displaystyle \left( \frac{y}{b}\right)^{g} \right]^{-s},

where y>0.

The Gini index can be computed as

G = 2\left(0.5 - \displaystyle \frac{1}{E[y]}\int_{0}^{1}\int_{0}^{Q(y)}yf(y)dy\right),

where Q(y) is the quantile function of the Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution, and E[y] is the expectation of the distribution. The Burr Type XII (Singh-Maddala) distribution is related to the Pareto (IV) distribution: BurrXII(b,g,s) = ParetoIV(0,b,1/g,s).

### Value

A numeric value with the Gini index. A NA is returned when any of the parameter is non-numeric or non-positive.
