Hello. This article is something of a copyvio, I'm afraid. In large part it's just of list of Gini's accomplishments. That's great, and not a problem. However, there are passages reproduced near-verbatim from , such as:
- In this thorough work he discusses the sex ratio at birth; beginning with an exposition of past theories, he proceeds through existing statistical information, new hypotheses suggested by this material, and verifiable consequences to be drawn from these hypotheses to a final check of theory against the statistical data.
- This he organised as a single, co-ordinating centre for all the official statistical services of Italy.
There are some other such phrases which are changed very slightly from the Metron bio. I don't think this counts as fair use.
I guess I'm inclined to simply identify the material which is minimally paraphrased & remove it. I guess I could probably also just replace it with a suitable (non-minimal) paraphrase. -- In general, though, it would be best to write articles from scratch, rather than trying to skirt around copyright issues.

Gini was also a leading fascist theorist. There should be more in the article about that. AndyL 05:30, 18 Apr 2004 (UTC)
