RE: st: Interpretation of nldecompose regression output

Unfortunately I do not have access, but I checked the presentation about
this: http://www.stata.com/meeting/5german/SINNING_stata_presentation.pdf
Two things are not clear:
- which is the true result: the one with Omega = 0 or Omega = 1?
- why there is no significance level like in the output of the Oaxaca
command?
- how to interpret the coefficient. For example, taking omega=1, does it
mean that 25% of the wage differential is due to different characteristics
and 75% to discrimination?

Many many thanks for your help!

Did you read the article which introduced -nldecompose-?

M. Sinning, M. Hahn, and T. K. Bauer (2008) "The Blinder-Oaxaca
decomposition for nonlinear regression models" The Stata Journal,
8(4): 480-492.

Hope this helps,
