Dear all, I would like to create a binary matrix (say matrix B) using the existing information from current matrix A. Specifically, for each cell (i,j) of matrix B, I want to replace its value with 1 if the value of the corresponding cell (i,j) of matrix A is less than the specified threshold value. In other words, matrix B[i,j] = 1 if A[i,j] < THRESHOLD. Below is the attempt that I tried in STATA, but it didn't work. Something must be wrong with my code. If I can get any tips how to efficiently and correctly handle this, I greatly appreciate it. Thanks, Susan *** Create matrix A from current data file local N=_N mkmat _all, matrix(_A) *** Create a temp matrix filled with 0s *** matrix _B=J(`N',`N',0) *** Specify the threshold distance *** gen threshold = 500 *** Re-place B[i,j] = 1 if A[i,j] < threshold local i=1 while `i' <=`N'{ local j = `i'+1 while `j'<=`N'{ matrix _T[`i',`j']= _A matrix _T[`j',`i']= _A if _A < threshold matrix _B[`i',`j']=1 matrix _B[`j',`i']=1 } } local j = `j'+1 } local i = `i'+1 } * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
