I don't have do files, but it should be relatively easy to program (the
greater complications are providing standard errors for the components).
By the way, a better reference for the method is 
Gomulka J and Stern N (1990) 'The employment of married women in the
United Kingdom 1970-83",
Economica 57, 171-199.
They were the orginators of the decomposition, and the Appendix to their
paper sketches out the econometric theory justifying it (and gives
variance formulae).
