April 2009 16:48 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Cc: noman.paracha@gmail.com Betreff: st: simple sum() question Hi, I have a simple question about summing across observations. I have 100 patients (variable: patient_id) in the dataset, each had clinic visits (variable: clinic) and hospital visits (variable: hospital) recorded at weeks 4, 8, 12 and 16. The dataset is long and hence I have 400 observations (one observation per patient per time point). I want to sum the clinic visits for each patient (across all 4 visits) bearing in mind that some patients had less than 4 visits. So effectively I want to generate a new variable that will produce the sum of clinic visits for each patient. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Shehzad * * 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/ * * 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/
