Sorry to ask, but I am really stuck and desperate and have 
an overdue Thesis to hand in.

Main Question:

Is it possible to quintile, quartile or Tertile data
By this I mean

I have 200 patients with approximately 20 to 30 sets of 
variables that I wish to examine in respect of each other 
using quintiles, quartiles or tertiles, to represent one 
set as THE INDEPENDENT VARIABLE and compare it with the 
other sets as DEPENDENT VARIABLES and statistically compare 
the resulting quintiles with each of the dependent 

In addition to this I would like to perform an AGE 
ADJUSTMENT on the above variables, since this will also 
effect there relationship to the independent variable.

Thankyou if anyone can help and make it very user friendly 
I will be eternally grateful


PS. Firstly can I update Stata 5.0 from the Internet to 
either version 6.0, 7.0 or 8.0?
