With many thanks as ever to Kit Baum, -lognfit- has been updated on SSC
(details below).

Carsten Schroeder discovered a bug in the (optional) post-estimation
calculations of Lorenz ordinates. Thanks to him. The bug also affected
post-estimation utility -lognpred- which is part of the -lognfit-
package. That is also fixed, and the help files revised.

-ssc install lognfit- or -adoupdate lognfit, update ssc- to get the
updated version.

package lognfit from
      'LOGNFIT': module to fit lognormal distribution by maximum

        lognfit fits by ML the 2 parameter lognormal distribution to
      sample observations  on a random variable. lognpred calculates
      statistics summarizing a lognormal distribution which    has been
      fitted using lognfit. Unit record data are assumed (rather than
      grouped data).
      KW: lognormal
      KW: log-normal
