### How to statisticlaly test percentiles?

Is there a statistical test for percentiles?For example I compute the 95th percentile of a data set. Then from the same data set remove and add a few observations and compute for the 95th percentile again. How do I test if the new percentile is statistically different from the previous percentile under a certain confidence level?
