Try the 


function for - mat b_`x' = dfdx[1,"`x'"]-

Betreff: st: decomposition concentration index

I am trying to decompose the concentration index (Wagstaff et al, 1997)
using the below procedure in stata 11. But, after run the model and obtain
elasticities, variables are not recognize in the step: mat b_`x' =

How can I do?

Thank you

sca elas_`x' = (b_`x'*m_`x')/m_frecgenprac
