Hi! Could anyone help me out on this?
I had no problems with -ineqdeco- command before.
It worked very well. 
But today I tried same things with same data using -ineqdeco-.
(Note that I updated -ineqdeco- command today)
I couldn't get the result(please see outputs below)
Why STATA says "no observations"?
Does anyone know what's going on?
Thanks in advance!
