```Hi Thomas,

Thank you very much for helping out!
something wrong in the data. The e(N) is correct, which I am sure.

Here are some codes of setting up the data. I need explain first that
smok_stat = 1 for SSS, 2 for SSQ, 3 for SQS and 4 for SQQ.
................codes start here................

gen smk_time=3 if smok_stat==1 | smok_stat==2;
replace smk_time=2 if smok_stat==3 | smok_stat==4;

gen cessyear=2004 if smok_stat==1;
replace cessyear=2004 if smok_stat==2;
replace cessyear=2003 if (smok_stat==3 | smok_stat==4);

expand smk_time;
bysort uniqid: gen seqvar=_n;
bysort uniqid: gen qtsmok=smok_stat>1 & _n==_N;

bysort uniqid: gen evntyear=cessyear;
replace evntyear=2002 if seqvar==1;
replace evntyear=2003 if seqvar==2;
drop cessyear;
rename evntyear cessyear;

gen wave=1 if cessyear==2002;
replace wave=2 if cessyear==2003;
replace wave=3 if cessyear==2004;

gen wave1=wave==1;
gen wave2=wave==2;
gen wave3=wave==3;

Here is the output:

The rPSPPPi is our price variable. We have more price variables but
logit results with them are similar to what reported here.

Thank you very much!
