Yes, the assert stop the calculation. I tried not to use assert to see what will happen, and try several combination, but off course, it didn't work. so the variables I have: for each individual: GroupID MemberID (1 to 7) WardID (1 to 74) Ward_1 Ward_2 etc Ward_74 that shows distance from ward where the person live to other 73 wards (0 for the ward he live in). But, sometimes member of group are only 2 or 3. Any suggestions? thanks in advanced Kartika 2010/2/23 Martin Weiss <martin.weiss1@gmx.de> > > <> > > " and for the Group, it is not uniform at 5, it is from 1 to > 7." > > > Are the ids within the wards contiguous, i.e. 1,2,3,4?
