A fun little Stata trick that I recently discovered is a way to find the percentiles breaks of a variable in Stata. So say you have a variable describing income and want to see what constitutes the values for each percentile in 10% incriminates. In Stata, one could write the following to find that information:

`sum income, detail`

This is a good command to find out what the data looks like in more detail. And it’s just cool.
