Dear statalist,

     Thanks to Kit Baum, the latest version (1.5) of decomp is now on
     SSC archives. To update, just type:

     ssc install decomp, replace

     The latest version has been rewritten for Stata 8.2 (though it
     will work under Version 7, see the help file). It now supports
     Stata's heckman command and the help file has been expanded.

     To summarise the ssc description:
     
     Decomp computes Blinder-Oaxaca wage decompositions. It compares
     the results from two regressions, using intermediate commands
     (himod and lomod), and produces a table of output containing the
     decompositions.  These decompositions show how much of the wage gap
     is due to differing endowments between the two groups, and how much
     is due to discrimination (regarded as the portion of the wage gap
     due to the combined effect of coefficients and slope intercepts for
     the two groups). decomp is designed for Stata's regress command,
     but also works with other regression commands, such as ivreg.
     The heck option allows decomp to be used with Stata's heckman command.
