st: Store cross-section means of stacked data |

Dear Stata-Users,

I have the following problem with regard to efficient programming/data storing:

Assume I have a data in stacked form, e.g.:

Country Year Var1

A 1 q

A 2 w

A 3 e

A 4 r

A 5 t

B 1 z

B 2 u

B 3 i

B 4 o

. . .

. . .

. . .

C 5 p

What I want is to compute the average across countries of Var1 for each year - and store these values to make a plot later on. So far I created a new variable, say Mean, and filled it with the mean values. The new variable, however, is also of size #Counties*#Years repeating the entries for each year #Countries-times -- although I would need to store the mean for each year only once.

What is the usual way to perform this task? Store the values in a matrix? Can I easily plot this matrix later on?

Thanks for your help,

Jonas
