Dear statalist,
Is there a way to estimate percentiles in Stata that uses linear interpolation, and allows probability weights?  The altdef option of the -pctile- command does not allow weights.
Specifically, we would like to find a command or user-generated programme that uses the same formula as the one used by SAS to estimate quantiles in the SURVEYMEANS procedure. Refer to: 
Many thanks,
