Kurmas Akdogan,

If the previous answer (see archives) was not sufficient, perhaps your
question was not understood the way you meant it to be. Let me try to
suggest some alternative interpretations.

You have a panel of data with variables A and B for a number of units and
for each of the years 1993 - 2000. For each year, you want to calculate the
means of A and the means of B. This will give you two variables Amean and
Bmean, each with 8 distinct values. Correct or incorrect?

Then I see at least two interpretations for the next step:

1. For each year, you want a scatterplot of Amean versus Bmean. This will
give you 8 distinct points on the graph. Each of the points could be marked
with the year. This case basically corresponds to the interpretation of the
first answer on the list.

2. Alternatively, you want two lines that possibly cross each other. The
first line is a graph of Amean versus year. Amean is on the Y axis and year
is on the X axis. The second line is a graph of Bmean versus year. For this
line, Bmean is on the X axis and year is on the Y axis.

So please give some more details if you need an answer different from the
first one.
