dear all,
i want to calculate the decomposition(eq 3) in the paper of Kidd and
Shannon, 1996,does the level of occupational aggregation affect the
estimates of the gender wage gap?
I have all the ingredients but i don't get the total gap by my this because for some of the components i have missing
values. For example the prop of men in occupation 1 is missing for
women and indiv in other occupations. Well, if instead of missing i
replace 0 the result is not the expected one. Do i have to gen, for my
example a  variable, or better a scalar that takes the same value even
if it is a men in other occupations?
