Hello,

I'm relatively new to Stata--I apologize in advance for my Stata naivety.

I'm struggling to find a way to have Stata calculate the number of modes in a non-normally distributed variable.

I've searched for a way to calculate this with procedures like the Dip- test, Silverman's test, Excess Mass test, etc., and I can't seem to find a straightforward way to simply calculate the number of modes in a single non-normal variable.

I'd greatly appreciate any advice.

Thanks,
Jordan
