The -egenmore- package adds many things to -egen-, including corr(), which calculates correlations (and covariances) between two variables.

To install:

. ssc install egenmore


Then it will be

. egenmore corrtc = corr(tfp,capital) , by(industry year)

Dear statalisters,
Can anyone help me with the following?
For each of the 39 industries and 5 years, I need to generate a variable
representing correlation between TFP and capital and store it in my
dataset.

This doesn't seem to work with egen or gen commands.


Thanks in advance

Victoria
