```Thanks a lot for the reference - the only problem is that unfortunately
mvdcmp does not support ologit/oprobit which I am using.
Therefore I am stuck again with nldecompose and the output I have troubles
to interpret.

Hi Ilaria,

Powers, D, Yoshioka, H and Yun, M forthcoming, 'mvdcmp: Multivariate
decomposition for nonlinear response models', The Stata Journal, pp. 1-20.

The authors provide, to me, a fairly clear explanations of decomposition
outcomes.

Cheers,

Francisco.
