Thanks David, I tried your suggestion and it does what I want. I didnt realise that the second loop could start further down into the outer loop. I also realise that my question was not clear in the first place, my apologies for that. Thanks also to the others who commented on this as well as the pwcorr postings. Ronnie >>> david.harrison@icnarc.org 23.02.2005 17:23:59 >>> The main observation I would make is that anything you want to do only once for each value of i (everything down to and possibly including the first "some more stuff"?) should go before the -forval j-. At the moment, these commands are being repeated unnecessarily for every different value of j. I am not familiar with -spatsam- so I can't comment on the use of this.

I would like to 1. Use a master data set 2. Keep observations that fall within a given range of a variable of values and save that as a data set 3. Draw a sample from this smaller data set and then do a few more things 4. Change the range in 2 5. Repeat 3 here is a really short version of what I have written forval i = 5000(5000)20000 { forval j = 5(5)15 { u masterdata, clear keep if dfor < `i' save buffer_`i', replace local expl_vbls "bla bla bla" //some more stuff u buffer_`i', clear spatsam, g(`j') x(x) y(y) norest saving(b`i'_space`j') replace //draw a subsample logit def `expl_vbls' //some more stuff } } Im not sure this is doing what I want it to do. Essentially I would like to implement the first loop keep if dfor<`i'< 5000 and then on this portion of the data implement the second loop forval j = 5(5)15 and then go back to the outer loop and increase the value of `i' and go over this again. Kindly advise on how I can proceed with this Ronnie * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
