Subject   st: displaying summary statistics of date variables
Date   Wed, 05 Feb 2003 16:06:52 -0500

Is there a way to display summary statistics of (elapsed) date variables in date format? For example, summary of the following date variable produces output which is difficult to interpret: What, for example, is the latest date in variable "date"? 15337 is difficult to interpret.

I have checked the manuals, the web site, and the list archives to no avail.

Thanks,
Devra
