The commands -decomp- and -decompose- perform the the Oaxaca/Blinder
decompositions regarding especially gender or race differences in earnings
or wages.

I would like to perform an analysis applying the Oaxaca/Blinder
decomposition-logic in the case where the dependent variable is binary,
say, work fulltime (1) or not (0).

A paper by Picot and Myles* describes generically how to perform such an
analysis. My question is: Has anyone written a do-file (or an ado-file) to
carry out such a task?

Best regards,
