st: New packages on SSC: -jmp2- and -smithwelch-
Thanks to Kit Baum, two new packages called -jmp2- and
-smithwelch- are available from SSC.
-jmp2- and -smithwelch- both compute trend decompositions
of mean outcome differentials (i.e. decompositions of
differences in mean outcome differentials). Examples are
the decomposition of the change of the black-white wage
differential over time or the decomposition of country
differences in the male-female wage gap.
-jmp2- applies the method proposed by Juhn, Murphy and
Pierce (1991); -smithwelch- is based on the approach
proposed by Smith and Welch (1989).
To install the packages, type
. ssc install jmp2
. ssc install smithwelch
