Re: st: gen lag variable
Heed the excellent advice you were given in the thread with the
subject line "superposed rolled windows" (e.g
viz. -tsset- your data and use the time-series operators (since these
will not create false lags when there are gaps in series, e.g. only
1990 and 1993-1995 are in the data but your bys firm (year): g
lagx=x[_n-1] puts the value of x in 1990 as the lagged x in 1993).
See [U] 13.8 and -help tsset- and -help tsvarlist- for starters.

I have a panel data for 1200 firms by year (10 years for each firm)
I need to create a lagged variable of one called roa but it must be lagged
for each firm
I tried with
by empresa: egen lagroa= roa[_n-1]
but the command give me this error: r(198)
What can I do?
