Dear Statalisters,

I have a panel dataset consisting of 25 years and 150 countries. I have 
a variable (var1) whose geometric mean I estimate for every country 
separately. That is, I use "bysort country: gmeans var1". This gives me 
150 different geometric means; one for each country. I want to divide 
var1 with its weighted average for each country for each year and 
generate a new variable var1_weighted with the new values but I need a 
command that can do this automatically, considering the time required to 
do this one by one.

Thank you in advance,

Pavlos
