Dear Shige,

I guess you may want to use some "density estimation" procedures. Stata
7.0 has "kdensity" procedure, which estimate univariate density. I am
not sure whether there exist multivariate density estimation procedure.

Subject: st: Questions about quantile

Dear All,

I want to do a regression-type analysis to determine the location 
(quantile) of a specific value in the distribution. For example, "what 
quantile will $4000 will be in the American monthly income distribution
in 
1999?" and "what is the effect of educational attainment on this?"
Quantile 
regression is very convenient for question like "what is the value of
the 
80th quantile of ...", my questions is kind of like its opposite.
Thanks!

Best,
Shige Song
