Hi,

I am generating a mean value by using the Mata matrices (since I am
using simulation data set is big and I don't want to use Stata matrix
language). So I get a single value from each repetition. And I want to
create a variable where each observation is my outcome, which means
each time the simulation runs there will be missing observations in
the variable. Thanks,

MZE
