Am I the only one experiencing weird characters when reading messages from
"kokootchke", a.k.a Adrian? Like "=2C" and so on... Makes it difficult to
read them...

Thank you=2C Martin and NIck. 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!
Adrian
