Hi all

I am trying to compare if the total healthcare costs
are different in those who missed work and those who
did not miss work using lincom because I am using a
survey data.  

The total healthcare costs variable is not normally
distributed. A large proportion of individuals had
zero costs.  I tried log transformation but it did not
change the distribution. So I guess I have to use
non-parametric tests.  

How can I use non-parametric tests with survey data?

Thanks for your time

Anju
