I have a panel data set, where there are duplicates of the panel variable.
But I want to retain them because the mistake is only in the panel variable,
not in other variables in the observation. (For my analysis, I would
aggregate the data so that the panel variable is no longer relevant.)
BUT, I keep the panel format in the beginning in order to fill in missing
values using interpolation. To do this I want to keep out observations with
the duplicate panel variable and append them back after interpolation has
been done. For a non-panel data, I could use the stata-code -FINDDUP- (by
Fred Wolfe downloadable from SSC). -finddup- helps to take out a particular
duplicate observation and save it for later use. But it does not work in a
panel set up. Is there any way around, other than doing it sepeartely for
