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
