    Compute the gini coefficient of the numeric data, with small sample correction.

     var giniSS = require('gini-ss');
     giniSS([0,0,0,0,1]) // --> 1.0
     giniSS([0,0,0]) // --> 0.0
     giniSS([3,3,3]) // --> 0.0
     giniSS([1,2,3,...,100]) // --> ~ 99/303 ~ 1/3
    

    Small Sample Correction

    The Gini coefficient with small sample correction has a value of 1.0 for the case of perfect inequality, when for example, with income data, all of the incomes are zero and one person has all the income.
    The traditional Gini instead yields G = 1-(1/n) = (n-1)/n. The correction is simply multiplying by n/(n-1)

    These converge as the number of samples n become large.
