Look at

to see the two formats available to you. Stata likes long format better, but
it also depends on what you want to do with the data down the road. 

Where do these observations reside? If in different files, you could
-merge-.

Betreff: st: Combining two financial reports in the same calendar year

Hello,

I am working with California nursing home data and I have a number of
nursing homes that have numerous financial reports in the same
calendar year that I need to combine.  For instance, nursing home ABC
has one financial report covering period Jan 1, 2004 - Mar 31, 2004
and another Apr 1, 2004 - Dec 31, 2004.  Is there a way in Stata to
combine these two "observations" into a single observation?

Thank you,
Matt
