Thanks to Kit Baum version 1.5 of the Stata module to compute the HOI
is now available for download from SSC.

To update or install the HOI module in your machine, simply type in
the Stata command line:

ssc install hoi, replace

The main new features of this module are:

(1) adds the option for users to compute the geometric mean of the
dissimilarity index (D). One of the main advantages of this new
measure is that it is sub-group consistent.

(2) when computing the traditional HOI, users can now chose the level
of the confidence interval. Default value set at 95%.


So far the trade off of using the geometric mean of the dissimilarity
index is that there no analytical solution for the standard error.
Users could boostrap the confidence interval, however this is not a
feasible option if one is working with a complex survey design. Since
Stata bootstrap function does not handle weights and
