st: ineqdeco, loops and missing values

Subject   st: ineqdeco, loops and missing values
Date   Sat, 26 Jun 2010 06:38:02 -0700 (PDT)

Dear all:
I would like to run a couple of loops using ineqdeco on a large dataset - to compute inequality for various variables by country (please see below).
Some countries do not have data for particular variables - and the program 
ends abruptly ever time it encounters such a case ("no observations").
Is it possible to amend my program so that ineqdeco skips over such cases?
I'd be grateful for any advice.
Many thanks.
Emma


levelsof country, local(levels)
local ctries "`r(levels)'"
foreach var of varlist var_1-var_10 {
      foreach ctr in `ctries'{
      ineqdec0 `var'[w=weight] if `"`ctr'"'==country //& var!=.
      replace Country_gini_`var'=r(gini) if `"`ctr'"'==country
      }
}
