Dear all,

I have a large data set, with 15,000 observations, nested within 500
census tract. Something like that:

Census Tract    Age    Sex
1                        23       Male
1                        65       Female
1                        68       M
2                        35       F
2                        48       F
2                        56       M

I want to generate two new variables, mean age and female proportion
for each census tract. I was able to use egen and created the new
variable mean age. However, I could not figure out how to create the new

female proportion variable.

Thanks in advance,

Fernando
