-findit oaxaca- gives you a variety of packages. I think that the package you are looking for is described in: Ben Jann (2008) "he Blinder–Oaxaca decomposition for linear regression models" The Stata Journal, 8(4): 453-479. http://www.stata-journal.com/article.html?article=st0151 Hope this helps, Maarten ----------------------------------------- Maarten L.
