Thank you for the explicit code - I appreciate it! Richard Goldstein wrote:

use the round function (e.g., gen x2=round(x1,.1)) Note, however, that numbers such as .1 do not have an exact binary representation and therefor you still might not quite match the SAS results Rich Suzy wrote:Dear Statalistmembers,

I am trying to replicate results from a SAS program and I need to know if there is a simple code to round to the nearest 10th for a continuous variable.

Thank you!

Suzy
