Dear Statalist,

I am decomposing the white female (high mod) - black female (low mod)
wage gap using oaxaca command in Stata.

I got negative value for the unexplained portion (differential due to
coefficients a.k.a. discrimination). And when I looked closer, most of
this -negativity- is due to the effect of the intercept coefficient.

Now, I am wondering how to interpret this negative value.
