I just wrote utility to compute the decomposition proposed by 
Frick, Goebel, Schechtman, Wagner and Yitzhaki in the May 2006 
issue of Sociological Methods and Research. This is not the same 
decomposition as in Yitzhaki and Lerman (1991; Review of 
Income and Wealth). However, I think it should be possible to 
compute the Yitzhaki/Lerman 1991 figures from the output of 
my program.

If you are interested in the program, you should contact me 
offlist.
