```Dear All,

I'm using ineqdeco in order to get some inequality measures.
I would also like to select the variable I get after the
command "return list". Specifically the output is

r(a2)	=	.3643077857892297
r(a1)	=	.1800902984233129
r(ahalf)=	.0882006026393467
r(ge2)	=	.1772751881782659
r(ge1)	=	.1721377012370914
r(ge0)	=	.1985610648159237
r(gem1)	=	.2865441621316133
r(gini)	=	.3267459538875286
r(p75p50)	=1.455160744500846
r(p25p50)	=.6287648054145516
r(p10p50)	=.3441624365482234
r(p90p50)	=2.013536379018613
r(p75p25)	=2.314316469321851
r(p90p10)	=5.850540806293019
r(p95)	=	14000
r(p90)	=	11900
r(p75)	=	8600
r(p50)	=	5910
r(p25)	=	3716
r(p10)	=	2034
r(p5)	=	1469
r(max)	=	23870
r(min)	=	650
r(N)	=	294
r(sumw)	=	1813587.379882813
r(sd)	=	3966.331583766521
r(Var)	=	15731786.23238383
r(mean)	=	6649.824563582564

but I do not need all the variables, for example the last
seven are not relevant in my case.

Is there a way to solve this problem?

Thank you

Caterina
