I am trying to create an index using based upon the score results from
principal components analysis I would like to express the results of the
score as an index from 0-100.
Centiles function gives me the centiles of the score but I cannot find a
way to categorize each value of the score (I only have 26 observations)
according to the centiles. Can someone give me a suggestion. I tried
egen with centiles but does not work, egen does not accept centiles.
