Hi, I suppose you want to count for each patient how many t's are greater than zero ?? The proposed solution . count if t >0 & t<. (saved in r(N)) works only if there is one observation per patient. The following will give you how many t>0 for each patient tabstat patient if t>0, statistics( count ) by(patient) columns(variables) hope this helps Rajesh -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Johannes Geyer Sent: 26 March 2008 16:05 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: Re: st: Re: Loop syntax I have some results on 236 patients and each patient has 57 recordings stored in a single variable t. I am trying to count how many of these patients have a score of t>0. I tried the following code: gen tcount=0 forvalues i=1/236{ forvalues j=1/57{ if patient==`i' & t>0 { then tcount==tcount+1 continue } I think a loop is unnecessary here - you just want to count, right? There are many solutions, e.g. count if t >0 & t<. (saved in r(N)) Johannes * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/res/findit.html * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
