The income coefficients are derived from the regression in table 1, including the coefficients on the year dummies, the country dummies and the interactions of interaction of year and country dummies. Mean (income0.72) is calculated by raising each individual's income to the power of 0.72 and then taking the mean. Mean health is mean individual health. Gini (income0.72) is the Gini coefficient for (income0.72). It is calculated by raising individual incomes to power of 0.72 and then cumulating the shares of the total of (income0.72) with individuals ranked in ascending order of income. The partial concentration coefficient is the product of the income coefficient, mean (income0.72), Gini (income0.72) divided by mean health.
