Hi Statalisters,
Is there a command that will list the number of unique individuals in my
dataset?  I'm familiar with the duplicates and dups commands, but these
aren't showing me the number of unique individuals.
It should be equivalent to the following SAS command which will identify
the number of unique observations by study_id:

PROC SORT NODUPKEY DATA=test;
BY study_id;
RUN;
