Thank you for you reply but it is not clear to me if your suggested procedure is a solution. The restore command gives me back an "error" (nothing to restore r(622);). Besides, after posting my request I have also searched for a code. Do you (or someone else) think the following one is a way to solve my problem? > gen ratio = x/y > egen m1=mean(ratio), by(id) > egen medm1=median(m1) > gen hi1=m1<medm1 if !mi(m1, medm1) ( uncertain if it should be: by(id) or by (firm) ) Please, help! Thank you in advance. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------ >Probably the simplest thing is to collapse the dataset and then >obtaining the median.
