<> " You can use bys Y:gen X=_N" Very true! Abhimanyu`s solution is preferable just in case George has missings in there which he wants to -count- as well. See this comparison: ******* clear* inp byte Y 8 8 5 5 5 3 1 1 1 1 . . . end gen byte myorder=_n bys Y: egen byte X=count(Y) bys Y:gen byte Xalt=_N //reestablish previous order, if important sort myorder drop myorder list, noo sepby(Y) ******* HTH Martin -----Original Message----- From: owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu [mailto:owner-statalist@hsphsun2.harvard.edu] On Behalf Of Abhimanyu Arora Sent: Samstag, 24.

If variable Y has 10 integers: 8, 8, 5, 5, 5, 3, 1, 1, 1, 1 variable X would the integers 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 1, 4, 4, 4, 4? Thank you a lot for any ideas.
