Dear All
I have information on the age of children, but for twins and triples I do
not have information on who comes the first tothe world. I want to use
egen-rank to create to a birth order for each child. Given the incomplete
information set, which option of egen-rank should I use? Do you know the
general rule to create birth order when the information is incomplete as
described above in the demography and medicine literature?
Thank you for your kind consideration in advance.
Kemal
