I support Stefan's approach here. Note that (e.g.) gen match = 0 replace match = 1 if int(test/5) == int(train/5) is just gen match = int(test/5) == int(train/5) However, there is a small problem with either if there are missing values. gen match = int(test/5) == int(train/5) if !missing(test, train) is better than either. Nick n.j.cox@durham.ac.uk Stefan.Gawrich@hlpug.hessen.de try this: *** Example Dataset clear set obs 1000 gen test = int(uniform()*200) gen train = int(uniform()*200) gen match = 0 *** You're not clear about start and end of the intervals you want: 1, 6, 11 vs. 70, 125 *** So choose the command that fits. ** Intervals [0..4] [5..9] [10..14]... [195-199] [200] replace match = 1 if int(test/5) == int(train/5) ** Intervals [0] [1..5] [6..10] [11..15]... [196..200] replace match = 1 if int((test+4)/5) == int((train+4)/5) Raphael Fraser I have two variables which I will call test and training each containing integers between 1-200. Each number in the test variable represents an image. The training variable contains the closest image to the test image in terms of similarity. test = (129, 163, 71, 176, 125, ...) train = (128, 162, 71, 119, 123, ...) The objective is to match both integers to the same interval. These are the intervals 1-5, 6-10,11-15, ..., 196-200. For example, when test=129 and train=128 are both in the same interval 125-130. Also test=71,train=71 are both in the interval 70-75. These are successful mappings. I would like a successful mapping to be =1 and failure=0. * * For searches and help try: * http://www.stata.com/help.cgi?search * http://www.stata.com/support/statalist/faq * http://www.ats.ucla.edu/stat/stata/
