st: generating a 0,1 variable which depends on lag values |

The solution to this issue presumably should involve a lag -- that is, "some positive action has been taken by an industry in the previous years." That would mean that Nisha's BB should not be contemporaneously 1, but should become 1 in the following year. A way to do that, starting with the year/industry/actions:

encode industry,gen(ind)

tsset ind year

bys ind: g sum=sum(actions)

g bb=L.sum>0 & L.sum<.

alternatively the last line could be written

g bb=L.sum>0 if L.sum<.

which would make bb missing in the first year of every firm. SInce bb refers to actions taken in prior years, perhaps that is more appropriate.
