Hello, in order to keep inventory while cleaning data, I'm using a clumsy manual step to keep track of how many observations I drop. For example:

. describe, short //INVENTORY: dropped 28097 for histology not NSCLC; N = 51,560

Is there a more elegant way to do this that could give me a summary list of variables dropped & the reason for drop?

Thank you.


Best wishes,
Michael McCulloch
