iop: Estimating ex-ante inequality of opportunity, Stata Journal, Volume 14, Number 4, pp. 830-846 12/2014. Status: Published

This article describes the user-written command iop to estimate ex-ante inequality of opportunity for different types of variables. Inequality of opportunity is the part of inequality that is due to circumstances beyond the control of the individual. It is therefore the ethically offensive part of inequality. Several estimation procedures were proposed over the last years. iop is a comprehensive and easy-to-use command which implements many of them. It handles continuous, dichotomous and ordered variables. Additionally to the point estimates, iop provides bootstrap standard errors and two decomposition methods.
