Hi,

      I have a quick question regarding the quintiles. I used the
command xtile listed in the manual under pctile to divide income into
quartiles. What I want to know is the  the highest value in each
quartile. I tried to sort and list, but the data is too big to list
all the values. Anyone has a more convenient way to do it?

    thank you.

    Jet
