{title:Description}
{pstd}
{cmd:rifmean} is a wrapper command that uses the capabilities of {helpb mean}
to estimate statistics and its standard errors.
{pstd}
Because the command is a wrapper for {cmd:mean}, most options from
{cmd:mean} are available but have not been fully tested.
{pstd}
For the correct estimation of bootstrap standard errors, it is recommended to
use the {cmd:bootstrap} prefix to apply the bootstrap through the whole
estimation process.
{pstd}
{cmd:rifmean} typed without arguments replays the last results.

RIF variables are estimated using the {cmd:egen} add-on {cmd:rifvar()}. An
intuitive description of RIF regressions is provided in Rios-Avila (2020).
