quietly summarize x2 if year>=1 & year<=5 display r(mean) local x2mean1_5=r(mean) di `x2mean1_5' you can then use x2mean1_5 in your calculations. You can, in principle, use r(mean) but this will be wiped on the next r-class command. If you want the mean for each individual year, you could use a loop forvalues yr=1(1)5 { quietly summarize x2 if year==`yr' local mean`yr'=r(mean) } di `mean1' di `mean5' Cheers Joseph 2009/7/8 <jjc.li@utoronto.ca>: > Dear all, > > I am going to calculate sth after the the regression.
