Your suggestions worked beautifully. The only= problem I had was that I think that Martin's code takes the average for al= l other countries.. but including ALL quarters across years (so=2C for all = first quarters=2C for all second quarters=2C etc. I think the code should s= ay > bys country quarter: egen totalicrg=3D /* > */ total(icrg) > bys country quarter: egen numobs=3D /* > */ count(icrg) but other than that=2C everything worked perfectly. THanks a lot!
