Dear Stata-listers,

Some must have asked this before, but I cannot find the thread on the Stata archives.
I am just using the command povdeco and would like a decomposition of the results by region.
povdeco r92pcex1 if urban2==0, pline(1160.363) by(reg7)

However, the programme stops and does not perform the decomposition by subregion.

Does someone known why this is so ? (I am still using Stata7)

Thanks a lot,

Thi Minh

Total number of observations = 3839
Weighted total no. of observations = 3839
Number of observations poor = 2428
Weighted no. of obs poor = 2428
Mean of r92pcex1 amongst the poor =   792.107
Mean of poverty gaps (poverty line - r92pcex1) amongst the poor =   368.256
Foster-Greer-Thorbecke poverty indices, FGT(a)

  All obs |        a=0         a=1         a=2
          |    0.63246     0.20072     0.08492
FGT(0): headcount ratio (proportion poor)
FGT(1): average normalised poverty gap
FGT(2): average squared normalised poverty gap
