Abstract

Given the results from two regressions (one for each of two groups), decompose computes several decompositions of the outcome variable differential. The decompositions shows how much of the gap is due to differing endowments between the two groups, and how much is due to discrimination. Usually this is applied to wage differentials using Mincer type earnings equations.
