I have used the svy command to produce population estimates based on a sample of individuals. I would like to estimate the median income of this population, but from what I see Stata will not let me do this. The svy: mean command just doesn't cut it because the estimates are sensitive to outliers. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to tackle this?
