Subject   st: How to calculate 75 percentile of other individuals on the same group

Dear all,

 A simplified version of my data looks as follows:

ID      Group     X
1       a             5
2       a             7
3       a             9
4       a             8
5       b             3
6       b             4
7       b             9
 ..........................

I would like to generate a new variable whose value is the 75 percentile of
other individuals in the same group as the concerned individual. For
example, for the first individual (ID=1), this will be: 75 percentile
of {7, 9, 8}.

I would highly appreciate if someone could suggest me a solution for this.
Thanks and Have A Great Day!
Sincerely yours,

Quang
