Abstract: This routine implements different methodologies to compute ex-ante inequality of opportunity for binary, ordered and continuous variables. For binary and ordered variables the method proposed by Paes de Barros et al (2008) and a modification introduced by Wendelspiess Chávez Juárez & Soloaga (2013) are computed. For continuous variables the two approaches by Ferreira & Gignoux (2011, 2011b) are implemented. Additionally, iop allows you to compute the decomposition of the inequality of opportunity measures by groups (Oaxaca-like approach) and by explanatory factors (shapley like decomposition). IOP allows you to use fweights and iweights.
