Thanks for your reply. However it's not ineqdeco that
i'm looking for but a somewhat different type of
decomposition that would allow the identification of
the extent of poverty associated with certain
subgroups (e.g. gender, age, education level etc.). It
would have a between-group and within-group component
like ineqdeco but also an income component that shows
the amount of poverty due to low income (eg. it would
be zero if average income exceeds the poverty line).
Many thanks again for your help.
best regards
