Oktober 2009 14:01 An: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Betreff: Re: st: RE: RE: How to generate this variable please? Dear Martin, Thank you very much for your response. I think we can use this data as an example: use http://fmwww.bc.edu/ec-p/data/hayashi/griliches76.dta We can use "year"(though there are not that many years here but we can see the average within -1 and +1 years (instead -3, +3). then we can consider variable "tenure" to be like "field" in my case. So now I would like to attribute for example to year 67 the average tenure category 1 in percent during the period of 66, 67, and 68.
