Like this?

sort incpc
gen temp1 =_n
gen temp2 = (incpc>228.219 & incpc<228.221)*temp1
egen temp3 = max(temp2)
replace temp1 = (abs(temp1-temp3)<=5)
replace temp1 =. if temp1==0
replace temp2=temp1*incpc
sum temp2

Dear Stata users,

Could someone suggest a code that will perform the following?
- I have defined a poverty level based on income per capita (incpc).  I would like to perform calculations on x number of households above/below poverty.

Here is an example: lets assume that the poverty level is an income per capita equal to 228.22.  I would like to calculate the mean income per capita for a total sample of 11 households: 5 households above poverty, 5 households below povery and the household at the poverty level.  That is, the mean income per capita for observations 8 to 18.

obs	househol	incpc
1	18109	15.87111
2	19705	52.32142
3	37503	75
4	25309	80
5	33520	91.14099
6	22905	100
7	4113	150
8	37520	167.7384
9	33102	190
10	28614	192.205
11	28504	227.3124
12	37616	227.3575
13	37620	228.22
14	33518	235.8528
15	33315	236.0431
16	4205	250
17	5210	250
18	23814	252.6725
19	28506	256.8579
20	30912	265
