How to respect the current order of observations
was explained in my last email. 

Nick means:
sort count
gen event = sum(incident != incident[_n-1])

which is the solution if you want to keep the order of
observations. Usually I don't care about it, but it is 
nice to know it. Thanks Nick!!

If you are exploring your data, -table- it is very useful.

table incident, c(N count)
