 I am doing some research with a houshold survey, however, I'm facing the
following problem:
To generate consumption quintiles among the survey population first I sort the
data according to consumption and then generate five groups. However, when
weighting the data each group previously generated does not hold anymore the 20%
of the population. Here comes my question, how can I generate quintiles in a
survey taking into account sampling weights.
Can anyone help me?
