Dear statalists, I need to find a matching sample for my object sample. Its matching sample is chosen from a large sample based on some filtering standards that the object and its matching should be in the same year, the same industry and the asset of the matching should fluctuate at the 30% upper or lower than the object. If there are more than one matching observation for any of the object sample, choose the one with the closest asset. If there is no matching observation for any of the object sample, then the filetering standards have to be relaxed, just choose the same year and the closest asset within 30% of the object observation. Based on the standards, the one with no mathcing observation will be marked as missing value. To clarify my expression, I take an example in the following. *the object sample input code year ind asset 1 2001 A 100 2 2002 B 200 3 2004 D 400 4 2001 C 100 end * the large sample from which choose the matching sample for the object sample. input code year ind asset 7 2003 A 120 12 2002 B 230 13 2001 A 150 11 2001 A 110 18 2002 B 220 end I need the resulting sample after mathcing. objectcode year objectind objectasset matchingcode matchingind mathcingasset 1 2001 A 100 11 A 110 2 2002 B 200 12 B 220 3 2004 D 400 . . . 4 2001 C 100 11 A 110 How to realize that? thank you for any help.
