Thanks Martin! Ok, but I guess I found the proper way to sort out the issue: I have 3 rows for each individual that contain individual characteristics + L mk info (in which I'm particularly interested) surveyed yearly in 3 different waves. I guess the most proper way is to separate my datasate into 3 files - 1 for each year - by obviously renaming the variables of each year. Then, with a double merge (by my newID) I will get the final file with 1 row for each subject. I hope this will work Cheers Chiara 2009/3/26 Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de>: > > <> > > Also: Give an excerpt of your data, or frame your question in terms of a > dataset shipped with Stata... > > > > HTH > Martin > > > -----Ursprüngliche Nachricht----- > Von: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu > [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] Im Auftrag von Martin Weiss > Gesendet: Donnerstag, 26.
