Hi everybody,
This is probably a very simple question, but I have not been able to figure out a solution.
I have a data set with consumption and other variables such as number of adults, district, sector for each household.
I need to write a programme that requires selecting the particular household whose consumption is nearest to the mean consumption of all the households. 
Can someone please  tell me, what is the Stata command that will do this for me?
Thanks,
Ramani
