Thanks to Kit Baum, there is now an updated version of -ineqfac- on
SSC. To get it:

	ssc install ineqfac, replace

or use -adoupdate-. Description below.

The previous version was written for Stata version 5 (1999)! The
current version is 8.2, is rclass, and saves a number of results.  In
addition to its advertised description, below, you might find it
useful if you wish to derive results, saved in r(), that contain the
means of each of a set of variables. See the help file.

      'INEQFAC': module to calculate inequality decomposition by
factor components

      ineqfac provides an exact decomposition of the inequality of
      total income into inequality contributions from each of the
      factor components of total income. ineqfac was designed as a
      for income distribution analysis in the case where the current
      sample contains observations on income components for each  of a
      set of income receiving units (e.g. families, households,
      persons).   In this case, facvars might include labour income,
      income from investments  and pensions, cash transfers, etc. See
      Shorrocks (1982b) and Jenkins (1995) for examples. ineqfac may
      also be applied to summarise and compare the riskiness of
      portfolios of wealth holdings: s_f, the "proportionate
      contribution of factor f to total inequality",  has exactly the
      same form as the "beta coefficient" used in finance analysis.
