I apologize if this should be asked elsewhere.
I have the following information:
I am trying to calculate a given percentile (in this case p99.723), or ideally, if possible, generate data from this information. Unfortuneately, I do not have access to any further data, as this information is from a Journal article.
I'm running into trouble due to the extreme skewness of the distribution. Given the above information, I have the following questions:
- Is it possible to generate data from this information?
- If not (which I'm assuming I cannot), can I calculate the value for a given percentile (p99.723)?
- How can one do this? (I'm currently using Stata, but have access to Excel and am willing to do this by hand as well if needed).
Thank you in advance.
