How about /* create those after the first existing period */ bys fund asset (period) : gen byte gap=period[_n+1]-period replace gap=60-period if mi(gap) expand gap bys fund asset (period) : replace holdings=0 if period==period[_n-1] /* create those before the first existing period */ bys fund asset (period) : gen first=_n==1 expand period-1 if first bys fund asset (period) : replace holdings=0 if period==period[_n+1] /* create a new period variable */ bys fund asset (period) : gen newperiod==_n ? hth, Jeph Stata Chris wrote:

Many thanks, that already gets me much closer. Unfortunately though a problem remains when I run this: Since I have very many different assets, filling in all assets in all periods turned out to kill my computer, i.e. it just got hung up for half an hour before I exited, and I think that if I had let it complete the task the resulting dataset would likely have been too large as well. Do you have an idea how I could fill in only those observations which I actually need: Namely for each fund-asset pair I would like to fill in a period only if the respective pair was observed in the previous or subsequent period?

Juli 2009 17:03 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: st: For each fund-asset pair I have observations on some periods, and want have them on each possible period... Hi Statalisters, I have the following challenge: I have a dataset that gives me for each fund-asset-period triple the quantity and value of holdings (i.e. how much of asset j did fund i hold in period t). >From this, I have for each such triple generated the flow (i.e. how much did the fund buy or sell of a certain asset) from last period until now. The problem is that the original dataset does not list holdings or size zero. Consequence: If a fund held say 500 units of an asset and then sold all of these, the respective fund-asset-period observation for the next period does not exist, so when I compute the flow I get a missing observation, although it should say flow=-500. Analogously, if the fund has bought 500 units of an assets after previously holdings of zero, I would like to have Stata tell me that the flow equals +500, but instead it will tell me that the flow is missing. So I figured the best thing to do, to be on the safe side, would be to make sure that for each fund-asset pair I have observations on all periods, rather than just on those for which holdings were listed. In upshot: My data are currently in long form, with each observation being a unique fund-asset-period triple. However, for each fund-asset pair I have observations on some but not all of up to 60 periods. The question is: How can I add observations such that for each pair there is an observation on each of the 60 periods (some of which may only have missing values, but they need to be listed)? Many thanks for your help!
