Betreff: Response from Stata listserv

Dear Martin:
 
Thank you for your prompt reply re: my posting on the Stata listserv.  This
strategy fixed the issue.
 
Could I kindly ask a follow-up question as well?   When I use the tssmooth
function to create 2 or 5 year moving averages, Stata calculates these
moving averages until the end of the time-series rather than stopping 1 year
(in the case of the 2 year moving average) or 4 years (in the case of the 5
year moving average) before the end of the time-series?    It thus counts
forward missing values as zero.    Would you know a possible strategy to fix
this problem as well?
 
Thanks, Jeff
