  1. * Most poor-least poor ratio (adjusted for the difference in total number of households in the two quintiles)
  2. ** Concentration index
  3. *** 95% confidence interval of CI
  4. # Statistically significant equity shifts
  5. a Not specified as division by zero is mathematically not defined
  6. b Dividend is 0, indicating that no household of the most poor quintile owned the respective asset
  7. c The calculated confidence interval by using the "convenient regression method" includes values larger than 1 or smaller than -1. As CI is only defined in the interval (-1,1), the values in the table are adjusted accordingly.
