Hi Martin,

I have read that post before but unfortunately it doesn't help me much. 

First, it seems as though the researcher is creating a table using two variables [hssex and hsageir]. Since I am only interested in finding the median of one variable, post estimation, it seems as though this will not work. The fact that I don't know what these variables are measuring makes the matter even more confusing. 

If anyone (including Martin) can give me a better an explanation of what  "table hssex [pweight= wtpfhx6], c(median  hsageir count hsageir)" does, I would appreciate it.

Betreff: st: Finding median with SVY command

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?
