ADJACENT: Stata module to list adjacent values of variables
Nicholas Cox ()
Statistical Software Components from Boston College Department of Economics
adjacent lists adjacent values for a set of numeric variables. Calculate the upper and lower quartiles, p75 and p25, and thus the interquartile range iqr = p75 - p25. Then the adjacent values are the highest value not greater than p75 + 3/2 iqr and the lowest value not less than p25 - 3/2 iqr. The adjacent values are marked graphically on a box plot by the ends of the whiskers drawn out from each central box.
