st: ineqdeco, loops and missing values

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.

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
