We developed a general-purpose multivariate decomposition command for nonlinear response models that incorporates several recent contributions to overcome various problems dealing with path dependence and identification. This work extends existing Stata packages in important ways by including additional models and allowing for weights and model offsets. Copyright 2011 by StataCorp LP.
