st: working with percentile cutpoints
Is there a way to create a new variable that uses cutpoints based on
unique percentiles of distribution? For example, suppose I want a new
variable with 4 groups at (or as close as the distribution will allow)
the following percentile cutpoints: 13th percentile, 35th percentile,
and the 73rd percentile? I've looked at -xtile-, -pctile-, and -egen-
and they don't seem to allow for this option.
What am I missing?
Thanks for any help
