I've been watching the back-and-forth on your question all day and I am
wondering if this isn't just simple problem of determining how many people
in each decile are needed to give a specified confidence interval about the
expected value for that decile. If so, then I'd think that any basic survey
sampling book would have that formula (and it's undoubtedly on the web in
many places). Am I completely misunderstanding what you are wanting to do?
