reldist estimates and analyzes the relative distribution of outcomes between two groups (two-sample relative distribution) or between two variables (paired relative distribution). The relative distribution is the distribution of the relative ranks that the outcomes from one distribution take on in the other distribution. An example would be the relative positions that female wages take on in the distribution of male wages. reldist can be used to estimate and plot the relative density function (relative PDF), a histogram of the relative distribution, or the relative distribution function (relative CDF). Furthermore, it computes relative polarization indices as well as descriptive statistics of the relative data, and supports the decomposition of the relative distribution by adjusting for location, scale, and shape differences.
