R - Decomposition of differences in distribution using quantile regression

Rqdeco3 implements in R the estimator suggested in Melly (2005, “Decomposition of differences in distribution using quantile regression”). It decomposes differences in distribution into three components: characteristics, median coefficients and residuals. It is conceptually similar to the Juhn, Murphy and Pierce (1993) decomposition but allows for heteroscedasticity.
