st: index-scrolling varname
I've to do a lot of computation on some groups of variables.
For simplicity, let's say I've to do rsum(a_first a_second) and, separetely,
I want to do it shorter using a loop:
- I generated a sort of index, let's say i, whose values is i="a" the first
turn, and i="b" at the second turn (and that's feasible)
- I would like to do something like:
egen i_tot=rsum(i_first i_second)
but I'm not able to explain to Stata that I'm interested in the value of i as a
part of the variable name.
Is it possible to do that?
