Dear Statlist;

I have data for US counties and for each county I have the distribution of income by race. Therefore for each county I have n race and for each race I have k classes of income and the number of people belonging to that race within such a class of income (see example below). Given this data I would like to compute the general level of inequality at county level and the inequality betweem races. To do that I have been trying using ineqdeco the ado written by Prof Jenkins with some partial success. If I run the command county by county I get the decomposition which I need but this would require to run the command for each of the 3000 counties in my dataset which seems quite a long procedure. For this reason I was wondering if there is anybody who knows a shortest way to get the decomposition at a county level. 

Also is there any way to retain results in stata?

Any help is appreciated

thanks

a
