Am I missing something? Doesn't the Greenwood formula give this to you, and isn't it in the ltable command? Tony Peter A.

März 2010 20:25 To: statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu Subject: st: calculating standard deviation of age at death from period life tables Dear Statalist users: I want to calculate the standard deviation of age at death from period life tables: So I know how many people died at age x, where x runs from 0,1,2...110: For example, in 2004 in the US people 2000 died at age 0, 1900 at age 1, 600 at age 2, etc. What I think is the right way of calculating is: To generate a new variable that contains 2000 times 0, 1900 times 1, 600 times 2 etc... But I don't know how I can generate this new variable in Stata most efficiently... Thanks a lot for any hint!
