Thanks Nick for the answers. Indeed, mata is a great tool worth learning. However, I do not get exactly what I want. It is giving me "values" while I want "conditions at the place of occurrences". I've got: 1 2 3 +-------------+ 1 | 1 1 3 | 2 | 1 1 3 | 3 | 1 1 3 | +-------------+ while I wanted: 1 2 3 +-------------+ 1 | 1 0 1 | 2 | 0 0 1 | 3 | 0 1 0 | +-------------+ I tried to dig a little bit, but am not yet familiar with looping in mata. clear mata: A = (1,2,3\1,2,3\3,1,5) r = cols(A) B = colmin(A)\colmin(A)\colmin(A) J = J(r,r,0) A r B J for (i=1;i<=r;++i { J(i,j) = cond([A(i,j)==colmin(A),1,0) } J I keep getting a conformability error. Many thanks in advance. Amadou. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'll take these questions in different order.
