st: RE: repeated values of a variable
As a further comment, even though Richard Williams
solved your problem: there are other answers to
your general question.
-duplicates- identifies observations that have
identical values for one or more variables.
There isn't a -duplicates keep- subcommand, but
you could -duplicates tag- and then -drop- if
the tagged variable was 0.
This is not a better answer for your specific
problem, which as said earlier can be solved
directly, but it is a general tool in this area.
