Although Nikolaos got good answers to his question, this Nicholas
wonders this is being done. Why throw away perfectly good information?

I  a continuous variable (age) with a range from 15-86 and around 1500
observations.
How could I convert it into an ordinal variable with equal number of
observations per group, given that I would like to have around 15
groups.
