I wish to compute a semi-log growth rate for the variable <approp> for
each <unitid>. More specifically, for each <unitid> and <year> combination
within the panel, I wish to compute a semi-log growth rate for the
variable <approp> for the trailing three year period beginning two years
in the past. As such, the first non-missing growth rate in the panel would
appear in 1990 for each <unitid>, and be computed by regressing the log of
<approp> for that <unitid> over the three year period between 1988 and
1985. The growth rate for <approp> in 1991 for each <unitid> would then be
computed by regressing the log of <approp> for that <unitid> over the
three year period between 1989 and 1986... and so forth and so on.
