Apostolos Ballas <aballas@aueb.gr> : I assume the reviewer means quantile regression. There is some squishiness in the definitions of rank and quantile in this area--see for example the help file for -qreg- which says quantile(#) specifies the quantile to be estimated and should be a number between 0 and 1, exclusive. Numbers larger than 1 are interpreted as percentages. The default value of 0.5 corresponds to the median. and many people would also call that number between 0 and 1 a rank. Of course, the quantile is not the number r between 0 and 1, it is the value at which the CDF equals r, and with N obs, the rank would be about Nr not r, but the sloppy terminology notwithstanding, use -qreg- to get a sense of the distribution of y given X rather than just the mean of y given X.
