-egen, cut- is for you. -ta- afterwards.. Zitat von Man Jia <jia.m@neu.edu>:

Hi all, I was wondering how to show frequency of a continuous variable in several ranges. For example, the variable "wage"measured with dollars and cents. In my data set, there are lots of values for this variables since people's wages are usually different from others. The command "tabulate" shows exactly frequency of each value. That's not what I want. I'd like to see the following information: range of wages frequency <=0.00 ?? (0.00, 10.00] ?? (10.01,20.00] ?? (20.01,30.00] ?? ..................... I know I could find number of observations in each range by using sum if wage <=0.00 sum if wage >0.00 & wage <=10.00 etc. But I'm thinking maybe there's simple way to do this. Any suggestions?
