It is not clear to me what constitutes the two separate periods in your example - I assume the large change in day variable from order 5 to order 6. You might find Nick Cox's -tsspell- helpful with this task. For example clear input order day 1 0 2 29 3 57 4 89 5 114 6 293 7 309 8 342 9 363 10 407 11 434 12 461 end tsset order tsspell day, fcond(d.day>100) l, sepby(_spell) noobs Scott On Wed, Feb 25, 2009 at 8:02 AM, Jakob Petersen <j.petersen@ucl.ac.uk> wrote: > Statalisters, > > I have a problem identifying compliant vs. non-compliant periods in > patients’ prescription history.
