Yes. 1. -egen- 2. -gen- For example: sysuse gnp96.dta,clear count gen max = . qui { forv i = 1/`=r(N)' { egen temp = max(gnp) in 1/`i' replace max = temp in `i' drop temp } } gen cumul_gnp = sum(gnp) Hope this helps, Scott > -----Original Message----- > From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner- > statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Bob Rijkers > Sent: Monday, September 26, 2005 5:32 AM > To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > Cc: mattia.romani@shell.com > Subject: st: Is there a statacommand for a Historical Maximum? & How to > cumulate series? > > To Whom It May Concern, > > Is there a command in stata that gives the historical maximum of a series? > (Not the absolute maximum!; i.e. the historical maximum at time T is the > maximum of the observations from time t=0 up until t=T.
