Dear list
Say I have data like this

hhid     salary   spending
1      19583       3346
2      20263       3114
3      20325       3554
4      26800       4642
5      29470       4669
...

Where hhid is household id. If I wanted to know the household with the median salary, I could for example

qui sum salary, detail
list hhid if salary == r(p50)

Is it possible to use the above information with -display- (display "The household with median salary is ....") so I can get

The household with the median salary is 5

Ronnie
