This generated a lively and continuing discussion. This is just to point out that -search array- points to an FAQ by William Gould. I suspect that if he were writing that now he would say less about -while- and more about -forvalues-. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Dan Waldo I have data in monthly expenditures in variables ing_1 through ing_6, and survey months in variables mes_1 through mes_6 (these vary from respondent to respondent). I wish to adjust the monthly expenditures for inflation, and I have deflation factors in variables def_1 through def_12. I am pretty accomplished in SAS, but only a novice in Stata. In SAS I would say: array def {12} def_1 - def_12; array ing {6} ing_1 - ing_6; array mes {6} mes_1 - mes_6; do t=1 to 6; month=mes{t}; ing{t}=ing{t}/def{month}; end; I have been searching unsuccessfully for the Stata analogue to this; I am sure it is written somewhere and I am just not using the best search terms. * * 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/
