The Out-migration Field Gini Index is a decomposed
version of the Rows Gini Index
(`migration.gini.row`

) representing "the
contribution of each region's row to the total index" ()
(`migration.gini.total`

):

*G^O_i =
\frac{∑_{j \neq i} ∑_{l \neq i,j} | M_{ij} - M_{il}
| }{ 2(n-2) ∑_{j \neq k} M_{ij}}*

These Gini indices facilitates the direct comparison of different territories without further standardization.

A numeric vector with the range of 0 to 1 where 0 means no spatial focusing and 1 shows maximum focusing.
