st: AW: What's the added value of having -in- subset the data before -if- does? |

The downside to that solution: . bysort foreign: list if foreign & _n <= 10

. bysort mpg: list if mpg < 20 & _n < 10 Also, I realized that since sum() creates a running sum this will not just list the first 10 observations because 0 (false) is also less than 10. So this: . list if sum((foreign == 1)) <= 10 should be: . list if sum((foreign == 1)) <= 10 & foreign == 1 or: . list if inrange(sum((foreign == 1)),2,11) & foreign == 1 A better example to show how the running sum also requires the condition to be repeated would be:

. list if inrange(sum((mpg < 23)),1,10) //correct . list if inrange(sum((mpg < 20)),1,10) & mpg < 20
