Dear Statalist users,

I am estimating gender wage gaps using quantile regression and would
like to decompose these gaps into components explained by
characteristics and coefficients. In order to do this I downloaded the
-rqdeco- command. However, I realised that I can only use this with
sample weights and not frequency weights (which are the only ones
available on the dataset that I am using). I then decided to use
-cdeco-  which, according to the help file, does allow for frequency
weights. When I ran -cdeco- I got the following error:


fweight not allowed
r(101);
end of do-file
r(101);


Has anyone else encountered this problem and if so what did you do to
resolve it?

Regards,

Phumzile Ncube
