Hi All

I am using survey data. I would like to compare  total
healthcare costs in two groups.  The variable total
healthcare costs is not normally distributed,
therefore one would run non-parametric statistics. 

Can someone tell me how I can run a non-parametric
statistics accounting for the survey data? 

I have compared the two groups with lincom using
svymean but I feel I should use non-parametric
statistics instead of comparing the means. 

I am sorry if I am missing something trivial. Thanks
for your time.

Anju
