Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Martin Weiss Well, how close is the third line in my suggestion line le year, xsc(r(1850 2006)) by(x) to your desired work-around? Markus Pannenberg Thanks Martin, you are right! (I also figured this out before sending my e-mail to the stata-list....). However: Does anyone know a work-around...?
