  1. Open bkf94I.dta
  2. Open the FGT curves dialog box.
  3. Draw FGT curves for variables of interest exppc and expeq with

    2. poverty line between 0 and 100,000 Franc CFA;
    3. size variable set to size;
    4. subtitle of the figure set to “Burkina 1994”.

  5. Draw the difference between these two curves and
    1. save the graph in *.gph format to be plotted in Stata and in *.wmf format to be inserted in a Word document.
    2. List the coordinates of the graph.
  6. Redo the last graph with .
