But the information is incomplete. You are asked to explain _where_
you downloaded user-written programs from.

After some messing around, I found that this program can be downloaded by

net install counterfactual, from("http://www.econ.brown.edu/fac/Blaise_Melly/";)

The help for -cdeco_jmp- says that any kind of weight is allowed. But
this is not correct; the code only allows aweights.

I can't speak for whether aweights would do for your purpose, but
there is a mismatch between code and help which you should take up
with the author(s), who may not be members of Statalist.
Alternatively, clone the code and change the program as needed.
