The GINI Index measures the extent to which the distribution of income (or, in some cases, consumption expenditure) among individuals or households within an economy deviates from a perfectly equal distribution. So the gini index for a country can range from zero suggesting perfect equality in income distribution to 100 where there is perfect inequality.
