Is -invcdf- on SSC (by Ben Jann) what you are after? -findit invcdf-

If so, I note that such transformations are usually applied to
continuous (wage or income) variables rather than categorical ones -- I
am guessing that your "health status" variable is ordered categorical.
(So you observe health in some coarse groupings, rather than some
underlying continuum.)

Hello Statalist Users,

I am working on racial disparity. I am using rank and replace method
which matches individuals based on their rank of health status and
transforms the distribution of health status conditional on white race
to equal the health status distribution conditional on black race.

I am looking for an appropriate way to transform the distribution of
white's health status to be equal to the distribution of blacks' health
status in Stata. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,
Meenakshi
