Dear Stata friends


recently Shawn McBrien sent a mail to Statalist 
looking for guidance in the use of -distrate- because the results 
produced by the command were not equal to those obtained with a 
spreadsheet.

I had the opportunity to see the data file and the do 
code of  Shawn McBrien.
In the data file a stratum is completely not 
represented and this causes the problem in the results of Shawn.

However, -distrate- fails to do the appropriate check and then produces 
an output when it should not.

Thanks to Kit Baum a new version of -
distrate- is now available on the SSC Archive where this problem has 
been fixed.

Best wishes

Enzo
