I have data on income grouped in ranges (0-29,999) ... (100,000 and over).
Is there a program in Stata that will convert these ranges to point values
(medians)? Is there a way that takes the distribution into account? Is there
a way to get a value for the end category of 100,000 or more that takes the
distribution into account. I know demographers have formulas for this, but
has anybody put these into a Stata program?
