Dear Dan,

I'm sure there is a more elegant way to do this, but how about

sort PID OB

gen calc_sum = calc

replace calc_sum = calc_sum[_n-1] + calc if (_n>1) & (PID[_n] == PID[_n-1])

gen cave = calc_sum / OB

Peace,

Daniel Lawson

Hello all,

I have iregularly spaced time/measurement data. I want to calculate an

average using all prior measurements. FYI, the variable to be

"averaged" is a dummy, so I would be looking at a percentage.

a hail mary was:

sort PID OB

egen calc_sum=sum(calc[_n-_n]), by(PID)

gen cave=calc_sum/OB

which obviously does not work.

My data looks like this. cave is the variable i wish I knew how to create.

PID OB dm dm_m calc cave

1 1 1-4-2000 0 1 1

1 2 1-10-2000 6 0 .5

1 3 1-28-2000 24 0 .333

1 4 2-1-2000 28 1 .5

2 1 10-5-1998 0 1 1

2 2 10-8-1998 3 0 .5

2 3 1-22-1998 17 1 .666

2 4 11-5-1998 31 1 .75

Thanks,

Dan
