I want to calculate how many items each subject completed within 60 seconds. And I can't do anything about the data structure, unfortunately. Amanda L. Botticello, PhD, MPH Outcomes Research Scientist Kessler Medical Rehabilitation Research and Education Center Assistant Professor Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School 1199 Pleasant Valley Way West Orange, NJ 07052 phone: (973)243-6973 email: abotticello@kmrrec.org >>> "Nick Cox" <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> 11/9/2008 1:14 PM >>> You've lost me. I don't understand how your data structure copes with time spent on failed tasks. Please be clear: Do you want to cumulate times and see how many tasks in total were completed within a total of 60 seconds, as implied by your original question, or do you just want to count how many tasks were individually completed within 60 seconds? Incidentally, I think you would be better off reshaping this to long. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Amanda Botticello The data is more like this: id item1 time1 item2 time2 itmem3 time3 1 1 2 1 3 1 2 2 1 5 0 0 0 0 3 1 3 1 3 1 5 The variable "item" is coded 0,1, where 1 indicates the item was completed Time is recorded in number of seconds to complete. If they didn't complete an item, the time is 0 >>> "Nick Cox" <n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk> 11/9/2008 12:59 PM >>> Still not very clear to me, but I guess something like this task1 task2 task3 task4 task5 20 10 20 5 10 5 10 15 30 2 100 2 3 3 4 So that the three individuals above had completed 4, 4, 0 tasks in the first 60 seconds. How many within 60 seconds? gen cumul = 0 gen within60 = 0 qui forval i = 1/5 { replace cumul = cumul + task`i' replace within60 = `i' if cumul <= 60 } Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Amanda Botticello PhD, MPH IT's a "wide" dataset...subjects completed up to 200 items in a task, and we recorded the number of seconds it took to complete each item. I can create a sum of the total number of items completed and total time; now I want to find out how many items each individual completed in 60, 90, and 120 seconds. Does that help? >>> "Martin Weiss" <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> 11/9/2008 11:00 AM >>> Well, if you want the running sum, look at -help sum()-. But maybe you could give us a peek at your data structure, that would assist in answering your question...
