I forgot another issue. I would like also to compute some quantile of the distribution, like the 10th quantile, the median, the 90th percentile, etc. as for the means, I can use egen bysort year gender education: egen p90=pctile(wage), p(90) However, also in this case it is not possible to use weights, the consider the weighted distribution. Someone knows how to do all that? thanks P. PS I have also used collapse, but also in this case it is not possible to use weights for means 2007/7/15, Paolo Naticchioni <paonat.stata@gmail.com>: > dear all, > my question s the following. > I want to create a new variable including the means for some groups > (strata) of the population. > For instance, assume my strata are year, gender, education. > > Using egen I can compute the average of some outcome variable, for > instance wage, using the following: > > bysort year gender education: egen average=mean(wage) > > However, using egen I cannot use any types of weights.
