Dear all,
I have the deciles of  the income distributions of 2 countries and I want to 
get the aggregate distribution.
Graphically, I've used "kdensity deciles_countryx, at(points) gen(y  f_y)", 
where "points" are some arbitrary values I've chosen; in this way, by 
multiplying each f_y by the respective population and summing up, I've 
obtained a graph of the aggregate distribution.
But I need the deciles of the aggregate distribution, not a graph. How can I 
get these deciles?
Thanks,
Francesco
