Dear all,

I was wondering if any of you have experience working with the "matching percentiles" technique to aggregate indicators with different distributions.

I am just using the pctile command for each indicator and then merging the datasets using the resulting percentile distribution. But I am not sure if this is the correct approach.
 
Thanks

Juanita Riaño
