Oh, thanks again. I tried -fill- but I didn´t understand how to make it repeat itself. :) Tomas -----Ursprungligt meddelande----- Från: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] För Martin Weiss Skickat: den 7 mars 2010 16:30 Till: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Ämne: st: RE: RE: Sequence of numbers <> -egen, fill()- would have taken you there as well: ******* clear* set obs 99 egen float myseq = fill(1 2 3 1 2 3) l ******* HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Martin Weiss Sent: Sonntag, 7.

März 2010 16:23 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: Sequence of numbers Dear Listers, Is it possible to generate a variable with a sequence of numbers that repeats itself, for example 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3. I tried -egen fill- but that didn´t work. Another solution would be to make a new dataset with tree lines with the values 1, 2, 3 and use -expand- and finally merge that together with the first dataset. However it would be nice if someone had a simple solution of how to do it within the dataset. /Tomas * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/ * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
