I am trying to do a multilinear regression of income data as the outcome with disability as the main predictor and controlling for confounding of age education and gender. the income data is from two different years where i am trying to see if there have been any improvements or socioeconomic gains for people with disabilities. In order to look at this from a more relative angle, it was suggested that i convert the income data into centiles (100 by 1) and use linear regression. However, i am running into issues because the income data includes negative and 0 income values which we do not wish to take out but analyze all together. These are being grouped into one centile which makes the data skewed when running the regression analysis. Is there any ideas on how this data should be analyzed instead. there is a weight for the data however this is not helping meet the assumption of normality.
