Hi,
for example if you had a variable called price you could do


summarize price if year == 2005
local base_value = `r(mean)'
gen price_index = price/`base_value'


Best

I have a time series from 1990 to 2010 and want to set the year 2005 as an index year (2500=100) so as to evaluate the other observations with reference to 2005. How can I do that with Stata commands?
