A slight fix to the code already offered:

bysort firm (characteristic): gen dummy = _N > 1

bysort firm innovation (dummy): replace dummy = dummy[_N]

This code assumes that a given innovation won't be listed with the same characteristic more than once.

I am working on a datset that contains information on innovating firms. My

question might be more understandable with the following example:

Firm 1 has 3 innovations (A, B and C). A and B have one caracteristic in

common (x); B and C have another caracteristic in common (g), while

Innovation D does not have the same caracteristic as any of the other

innovations.

I would like to create a dummy that takes the value one if an invention by

a given firm has at least one caracteristic in common with one of the other

innovations by the the same firm. My question is how can I get this dummy?

<snip>

. by firm (charateristic): gen dummy = _N > 0

. by firm innovation (dummy): replace dummy = dummy[_N]
