st: calculating income deprivation in stata |

Hello, I am trying to construct a variable indicating individual's relative standing in the society as measured by income and other parameters. When speaking of income, one of possibilities is to consider income percentiles and to use commands such as -pctile- and -xtile-. But, I would also give it a try with income deprivation and this is where the things get more complicated. Namely, I want to construct a variable called income deprivation score. Each individual A in the dataset would be assigned a score that is the sum of all income differentials between individual A and all other individuals who have a higher income than individual A. Do you know of any Stata code that can help? I have only been able to find -mdepriv- but it can only work with dichotomous deprivation indices, which is not very useful when working with income. Or, alternatively, what would be syntax if user-written code as such does not exist? Many thanks in advance!
