Thanks to Kit Baum a new version of the -seqlogit- package is now
available from SSC.

seqlogit fits a sequential logit model. This model estimates the
effect of the explanatory variables on the probabilities of passing a
set of transitions. For example, given a highest achieved level of
education the researcher studies the effect of socio-economic status
on the probabilities of passing the different transitions between
levels of education. If these levels have values (e.g. years of
education) than this model also implies an effect of the explanatory
variable on the highest achieved level. The program -seqlogitdecomp-,
which is part of the -seqlogit- package, displays several graphs that
decomposes this effect on the highest achieved level into parts that
measure the effect on the probabilities of passing the transitions and
the importance of each transition. More can be found here:

In this new version the -z- option was added to -seqlogitdecomp,
table- which means that z-values are displayed instead of standard

Sometimes, in larger more complicated models, -seqlogitdecomp-
returned an error. This has been fixed.

I hope some of you will find this useful,
