Hi everyone, Did someone know how to generate the 90th percentile and 50th 
percentile of the wage distribution?
I am working on a paper about the wage inequality of China.  I read some paper 
that the inequality is caculated based on the percentile wage differences, I 
want to carry out my researh as follows:

The analysis revolves around two empirical models in which the respective 
dependent

variables are specified as the difference of the log 2001 wage between:

(i) the most skilled (measured by the 90th percentile of the wage distribution) 
and the least skilled

(measured by the 10th percentile of the wage distribution);

(ii) The most and ‘medium’skilled worker (measured by the 50th percentile of the 
wage distribution);

Did someone know how to generate the 90th percentile and 50th percentile of the 
wage distribution?
thank you very much!
