I don't know what your reviewer means by "rank regression". The word "regression" means "conditional mean" (or used to), and I personally don't usually use it in connection with rank statistics. However, median slopes (with confidence limits) can be calculated using the -censlope- module of the -somersd- package, which you can download from SSC. The -somersd- package is distributed with 3 .pdf manuals, which you can download as ancillary files, and which explain the theory.

Subject: st: Rank regression

A very persistent referee is asking that I carry out an analysis using rank
regression. Could you please suggest how this is done in Stata since there
appears no reference in the manuals? Also, if anyone could also help me with
the statistics, how does it compare with quantile regression?

Many thanks,

Apostolos Ballas
