Hi,

I am using STATA9 for MS Windows XP (my first week as a STATA user). I
am attempting to compute the Gini coefficient with data from a series of
multi-stage US national (National Health and Nutrition Examination
Surveys) with a zero-rich variable. I was able to adjust for the design
effect and standardize the proportions of the variable of interest to
the 2000 census however I have not been able to figure out how to use
these data with ineqdec0 since the program does not accept summarized
data. I have the proportions and adjusted standard errors. I would be
grateful if someone could suggest the necessary modifications.

Thanks,

Jay
