Looks like a fairly old version: . which ineqdeco c:\ado\plus\i\ineqdeco.ado *! version 1.0.1 Stephen P. Jenkins, April 1998 STB-48 sg104 *! Inequality indices and decomposition by population subgroups *! Syntax: ineqdeco <var> [[w=weight] if <exp> in <range>], *! [by(<groupvar>) w s] How would I go about finding a newer one? I just downloaded the first one that came up. Thanks for all of your help and patience.
