Subject: st: Creating a variable that contains the 2nd, 3rd or 4th largest
value in a row

Hi,

I am trying to create a variable that identifies the 2nd, 3rd or 4th
largest value in a row of variables. I can identify the largest value
suing the following command:

egen max= rowmax(varlist)

However I am not sure how to create a variable that identifies the
2nd, 3rd or 4th highest value.

Thanks,
James Cross
