Hi dear R-helpers,

Happy new year. I have estimated Gini index variance in the case of complex survey (stratify and with two stage sampling). I use the survey package. I use replication (bootstrap, and Jacknife) and linearisation according to Binder (1993) article

David A. Binder and Milorad
Kovaˇcevi´c(1993), « Estimating some measures of income inequality from survey

data : An application of
estimating equation approach », Proceedings of the ASA Survey Research Methods,


But I found different results. According to my experience, result of linearisation are more accurate. Is it an explanation to this ? Is bootstrap appropriate for all situations or there are drawback?
