Nick and Philippe,

Thank you for your advice.
And I'm sorry for my late reply.

With -mkmat- and sample codes Philippe gave, I could
get desired results.

As to the chi-square test, the motivation is that
I wanted to test for homogeneity of two transition
probability matrices (created from the original ones
by normalization) across periods.
If it requires, as Nick commented, additional programming,
it might be better to look for some other strategies.

P.S.
BTW, what does 'MET' in 'Shorrocks' MET' stand for?
Though I read Shorrocks' Econometrica paper, I couldn't
come up with its original.

K.I.
