[Q] Estimated error of sample percentile?
Posted:

I am looking for an expression for the estimated error of a sample percentile statistic (more specifically, the sample median). I've looked in the two statistics textbooks I have without much success. Does anybody know a source for this information?
Thank you very much in advance.
