Dear Statalists, unfortunately, there is a problem with the command you suggested me. I have my data set save as "C:\Users\icehiwi\Desktop\DAT LIMITED\divers.dta" So, I 'clear' and do the below commands: cd "C:\Users\icehiwi\Desktop\DATATEC LIMITED\" use divers.dta gen firstsic_sub=int(sic_sub/100) gen firstsic_moth=int(sic_mother/100) gen twosic_sub=int(sic_sub/10) gen twosic_moth=int(sic_mother/10) capture erase new.dta tempname new postfile `new' str10 id_mother year double diver using new levelsof year_inc_sub, local(levels) foreach y of local levels { count if (year_inc_sub<=`y') & (firstsic_moth!=firstsic_sub) scalar digit=r(N) count if year_inc_sub<=`y' scalar total=r(N) scalar a=scalar(digit)*3/scalar(total) count if (year_inc_sub<=`y') & (firstsic_moth==firstsic_sub) scalar digit2=r(N) scalar b=scalar(digit2)*2/scalar(total) count if (year_inc_sub<=`y') & (twosic_moth==twosic_sub) scalar digit3=r(N) scalar c=scalar(digit3)*1/scalar(total) scalar all=scalar(a)+scalar(b)+scalar(c) post `new' ("X") (`y') (scalar(all)) scalar drop all digit total } postclose `new' use new, clear sort year\ Finally, my results listed as: id_mot~r year diver | |-------------------------| 1. | X 1985 3 | 2. | X 1990 3 | 3. | X 1992 3 | 4. | X 1999 3 | 5. | X 2000 3 | |-------------------------| 6. | X 2003 3 | 7. | X 2004 3 | 8. | X 2005 3 | 9. | X 2007 3 | 10. | X 2008 3 But, this is not exactly what I wanted. I would like the variable 'year' to be years from 1990-2005 in a sequence. Any suggestion? Thank you for consideration!
