Re: st: Loop over variables with svyset |

Hej Stas.... this seemed to be a nice idea..... BUT.... For this kind of loop I need again for every variable every year. But unfortunately I don't have Variables for every year. Often only for the year 2002 and 2007, but also 2004 and 2006...you see what I mean? That is the biggest problem with this kind of loop. I think I have to split the data set even if this means more manually work. Best Daniel 2008/11/18 Stas Kolenikov <skolenik@gmail.com>: > switch the order of the cycles, then.
