Re: st: RE: mode
Thank you Nick for your help. I am a little uncertain
as to what I do next. My variable is increase in wage
settlements occuring each year. I have done
. egen modeinc = mode (incres)
The variable modeinc appears on my variable list. I am
not sure what I do next. I have tried various things
but I do not appear to get the mode of this variable.
Doing it manually is out of the question as I have an
extremely large dataset.
I would be be grateful, if you would let me know,
references on how I obtain mode.
Thanks in advance
