Dear StataList,

I would like to produces averages in my cross sectional data and was wondering how to do it.

I have cross sectional data on 300 plots for 100 farmers. Each plot is associated with a farmer's identification. Hence the same farmer can have multiple plots.

I would like to estimate the following production function for my 100 farmers:

(Yi-Yibar)=(X1i-X1ibar)+(X2i-X2ibar)+(X3i-X3ibar)+....

where i= ith farmer, Y = output, and X1i,X2i...'s= various inputs of the ith farmer,

Yibar=average output of ith farmer calculated over his multiple plots,
X1ibar=average of input1 of ith farmer calculated over his multiple plots etc.

How can I select the ith farmer from my data and calculate averages? Note that each farmer has a farmerID

I know that I must sort the data by "farmerID" but what comes after?

Thank you in advance.

Sincerely,

Gauri Khanna
