Hello,

I downloaded the package for ineqdeco and am attempting to make
village-level (denoted by variable "vil" in my data) gini coefficients
using a variable in my data set called "totasvalall_10." I am trying
to do this by running the command ineqdeco by vil, then trying to have
Stata recall those values and put them into a variable named "gini."

Below is the syntax that was suggested to me, although Stata is unable
to recall any of the gini coefficients after running the second line.
When it runs the "replace" line of code, no values are inserted into
the variable "gini." So, it appears that Stata is not remembering the
information after running ineqdeco. Am I missing something? I am using
Stata 11.

generate gini=.
ineqdeco totasvalall_10, by(vil)
foreach z in 1111 1112 1113 1114 1211 1221 1222 1311 ///
3111 3112 3211 3212 3213 3214 3311 3312 3313 3314 ///

7524{
replace gini=r(gini_`z') if vil==`z'
}

Many thanks in advance for your help.
