st: Xtlogit: how to build a dataset with event periods
Iım a new user of stata. I have a dataset giving the beginning and the end
of jobs held by some respondents. For my research I need to use xtlogit.
Has I understand, it is necessary that I build a dataset indicating if the
individual were in employment for each week. Here, the weeks are virtual,
i.e. they represent the number of weeks passed since a certain event.
Id Job_Rank job_beg job_end
23 1 6 19
23 2 26 57
27 1 3 24
27 2 28 32
27 3 36 68
In SAS with the commands arrays, it is relatively simple to build line
vectors indicating by 0/1 if the respondent had a job during the observed
period (104 weeks). I donıt think there is an equivalent command in Stata.
In my case, I wish to build a column vector indicating yes/no (0/1) the
individual was in employment on the period observed. Which command do I need
to use in my case and how can I build this type of dataset?
