hi, is there a 'sounds like' function in Stata? I have a list of names of individuals of Indian origin, and I am trying to figure out if any of them sound like names in a master list.

Here is how my data looks:

Individual names
Joshi
Gupta
Tata
Asli

Names in Master:
Tatas
Alsi

I need to be able to figure out the following:
Joshi - No match
Gupta - No match
Tata - Tatas
Asli - Alsi

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Dalhia

Hi guys,

I am trying to calculate the number of certain day and
month occurrences
between the two dates: e.g. calculating the number of
September 15th's and
February 2nd's from 28-Jan-1997 to 17-Sept-2002.

any ideas will be appreciated
