I have 100patients (variable: patient_id) in the dataset, each had clinic visits(variable: clinic) and hospital visits (variable: hospital) recorded atweeks 4, 8, 12 and 16. The dataset is long and hence I have 400observations (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 effectivelyI want to generate a new variable that will produce the sum of clinicvisits for each patient.Any help would be appreciated.
