I don't know why you are suddenly referring to roa --which I assume is return on assets-- but I don't see how this changes anything I have written. Why don't you include some code in your efforts to solicit help? It would be easier to decipher what you are looking for & what you have tried.
>But in roa1 i don`t need all the observations
