Subject   st: Update to -adolist- available from SSC
Date   Mon, 3 Sep 2007 10:39:15 +0200

Thanks to Kit Baum, an update to the -adolist- package is available
from SSC. -adolist- manages lists of user ado packages.

To install the update, type

 . ssc install adolist, replace

or use the -adoupdate- command.


-adolist- now interacts with the SSC archive. For example, type
-adolist ssc- to view the list of available adolists on SSC:

. adolist ssc
Ado package lists
PACKAGE LISTS you could describe:
    wagegap           Wage gap decomposition packages

DIRECTORIES you could -net cd- to:
(type -adolist ssc pklname- for more information on pklname)

There is just one package list available yet. You can then click on
"wagegap" in the output above or type -adolist ssc wagegap- to
describe the list:

. adolist ssc wagegap
package list wagegap from
    Wage gap decomposition packages

    This package list comprises ado packages used for the
    decomposition of wage or income differentials between
    groups and related applications.

    Assembled by: Ben Jann, ETH Zurich,


    --- Decomposition of wage differentials ---
    oaxaca            module to compute Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition
    decomp            alternate module to compute Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition
    decompose         antecessor of oaxaca

    --- Difference-in-difference decomposition ---
    jmpierce2         module to compute trend decomposition of wage
    smithwelch        alternate module to compute trend decomposition
of wage differentials

    --- Generalizations ---
    gdecomp           module to compute non-linear Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition
    fairlie           module to compute Fairlie decomposition for
binary outcomes
    jmpierce          module to compute decomposition of differences
in various statistics
    dfl               module to compute DiNardo/Fortin/Lemieux
counterfactual densities

    --- Related packages ---
    devcon            module to apply the deviation contrast transform
    margeff           module required by gdecomp
(type -adolist ssc wagegap, install- to install)

To install the package list from SSC, then type (or click)
-adolist ssc wagegap, install-.

Call for Contributions

The idea behind -adolist- is that users can share their knowledge
about ado packages. Of course this only works if many users
participate and provide their own package lists.

If you want to make available a package list, compile the package list
(and a help file) using -adolist store- and then send the package list
file (and the help file) to Kit Baum (, who will upload
the package list to the SSC archive. Make sure that you use a unique
name for the package list (package lists and packages share the same
namespace). Furthermore, it is sensible to use the -title()- option in
-adolist store- to include a package list title to appear in the table
of contents displayed by -adolist ssc-. You may contact me offlist
( if you need assistance producing a package

[In case you are interested: Yes, the -wagegap- package list,
including the accompanying help file, was produced by a single call to
-adolist store- with out any post editing of the files.]

Further changes

o -adolist dir- and -adolist describe- now produce output that mimics
  the output from -net from- and -net describe-.

o -adolist describe- now displays subheadings.

o -adolist install/update- now keeps track of packages that
  were on the system prior to installing the package list and,
  by default, -adolist uninstall- does not uninstall such

o -adolist install/update- now removes old copies of packages.

o -adolist describe/install- now has a -from()- option to specify
  the location of the package list. Alternatively, include the
  path in the package list name.

o -adolist- should now be robust to paths containing blanks
