-pshare- computes and graphs percentile shares from individual level data. Percentile shares are often used in inequality research to study the distribution of income or wealth. They are defined as differences between Lorenz ordinates of the outcome variable. Technically, the observations are sorted in increasing order of the outcome variable and the specified percentiles are computed from the running sum of the outcomes. Percentile shares are then computed as differences between percentiles, divided by total outcome. pshare requires moremata to be installed on the system; see ssc describe moremata.
