Hello,

I have a dataset I couldn't create lag variable. The details are as follows:

It is a variable for each state and each year. So what I did was:

sort state year
gen V1=V[_n-1]

However, what I got in STATA is
weights not allowed 
r(101);

Anyone have any idea what is going on? How can I create a lag variable in this case?

Thank you very much.
