Dear Austin,

Here is the code that I am using for sorting and
taking 5 year avarages. I hope this part would be
enough to tell if there is anyting wrong.
ifscode is unique for each country in my data file and
year is between 1960-2002.
Thank you very much.
Regards,

ilker




sort ifscode year;
I suspect Austin nailed the problem. See -help sort-. Try using the -stable- option and see if all is well after that, e.g.

sort ifscode year, stable;
