Thanks for the answers. I am sorry for the brevity of my original question, I wrote it with my mobile phone.

I am aware of decomposition methods for logit models in Stata (such as the fairlie and nldecompose packages), but I was not sure, if there is a problem when these are applied to person-period data (when doing survival/event-history analysis) instead of to data that has only one data line for each person. But I guess that can be done, then.

What you call discrete-time event-history models is known in economics
and other fields as survival analysis, and what you call Fairlie's
method is actually an extension of what labor economists know as the
Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition. It is important to provide full
references when writing to Statalist, so people in other fields can
understand your problem.

Now, survival models can be seen as a non-linear model, so the
extension of Blinder-Oaxaca to non linear models could be used. The
theory behind this approach is in this presentation and the references
therein:

http://www.stata.com/meeting/5german/SINNING_stata_presentation.pdf

An extension of the Blinder-Oaxaca decomposition for survival models
is given in this paper.

Hope this helps,
