Subject   st: Calculating Moving Averages with Missing Values
Date   Tue, 30 Mar 2010 09:45:56 +0100

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?
