Hi,

I am trying to run a dynamic (change in) ineqaulity distribution
analysis on Stata. I first used the 'descogini' command to run the
Gini decomposition by income source for year A and B. I am not sure
how to now extend this analysis to analyse the change in ineqaulity. I
read that I need to save the results of each year in a local macros
but I am unsure of

 - What results are to be saved. G_k?

 - Where does Stata save these results? Return list does not provide an answer.

- Once I save these results for both the years, do I just run
descogini on these two local macros?

 Commands Used:

descogini PCI Pension1 Pension2 Pension3 LabourIncome LabourIncome2
PvtTransfer rent TCT if p==0 (for 2004)
local 2004 = r(Gini) or G_k ??
descogini PCI Pension1 Pension2 Pension3 LabourIncome LabourIncome2
PvtTransfer rent TCT if p==1 (for 2009)
local 2009 =G_k
descogini 2004 2009
